Crab in Sailboat

Just a quick post to share my card for today's new "Stella Says Sketch" challenge over at Catch the Bug as I will soon be heading to the airport before I leave for a one week holiday.

I used an image called "Crab Boat" - you can find it here in the Bugaboo store. I used my Promarkers to color it. The background is embossed with stripes and I used my Memory Box star stencil and embossing paste. The waves are made with a Memory Box die and I also added a piece of washi tape.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafty Catz - #273 - Anything Goes
2) Creative Corner - Animal Fun
3) Dies R Us Challenge - #23 One for the Boys
4) Cardz 4 Guyz - #64 - Something beginning with S (sailboat, stars, stripes)

This cute crab is so much fun and it pop well in this scalloped circle.
The "sea" is just fabulous, love so much this curly waves on the washi tape, they are stuning!! The starlight background has a great 3D look with the paste, you have a clever idea, I should remember it!
I wish you an Happy Easter!
