Snappy Birthday

Hi everyone,

My card today is for a challenge I do each month with a couple of friend of mine. Each month we get together to share ideas and have fun. This time round our challenge was to use any of Karen Burniston's Character dies to create our cards.

The character I selected to use for this challenge is Rocky the Crab. I created a Pop Up card using the Anita Frames Pop Up card die set.

I decorated the left side of my card using the Palm Tree from the Palm Tree and Pail die set. On the right hand side I added Rocky, I added the crown from the Anita Frames Pop Up which makes him a king crab, right!

I added the sentiment by mixing a number of different sentiments from one stamp set to get the word Snappy from Happy and Congratulations ... the ns at the end of the word turned upside down worked well for the SN.

For the front of my card I added another Rocky the Crab this time wearing the snorkel from the Props  3 die set. The sun is from the Oval Pull Card die set.
