Stampin' Up Punch art Crab Card



I have been dying to make this little crab! I have seen several different one's on Pinterest, so I incorporated several and came up with this cute little guy! He is so stinkin' cute!! WHAA!! I used 2 different challenges for this card, I knew when I saw the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary and Freshly Made Sketches, that I was gonna..... get busy!! I really like the way this little crab card turned out. I put a FREE tutorial at the end.  :)




           




So here's my card:




Is he too cute... or what?









I used the new Flashback Designer Series Paper to make the back ground of this card. I is just a happy little card. I don't know about you, but sometimes I get a little crabby and this little fella sure would perk me up! :)








The Taffeta Ribbon is one of my favorites, it just a little element that ties in all in. I popped up the eyes and the word bubble. On the eyes I also used the uni-ball Signo gel  pen to add a little sparkle.
