A pinch

Yay! This is my first card in over a month!!!

It's simple, and based of off Kazan's Sketch 9, from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog.

I used the CB embossing folder on the card base, and tore the Kraft paper (after I wheeled on the Sandy Shells stamp). Does it look sandy?

My blender pen + ink = coloured crab. I still need to work on staying in the lines! I added some googly eyes, and the party hat.

Of course, I had to use my new wide oval punch, into which the sentiment fit perfectly! Some hemp twine (also new :p) finished it off.

I had to deviate from the sketch a bit, but I think it works!
