Oh Crab!...PS Sparks Cool Shades/MFW Birthday Card Challenge

Holy crow! This is my third post today! I have a quick card to share for the Paper Smooches Cool Shades challenge and the Moxie Fab World's Birthday Card challenge:

the inside:

Here's the colors from the Sparks challenge:

This was pretty quick to put together. I stamped the crab (thanks Barb!) in red ink on red paper then added googly eyes. (He looks so cute!) I notched the corners of the kraft panel with decorative scissors in a scalloped design, inked the edges then embossed. Die cut the streamer, and stamped it. Adhered everything with foam squares. Finished the inside and that's all she wrote.

Ok, I'm really done for tonight! Have a great evening!
