Snappy, Snappy Birthday!

This card is for THREE, yes... THREE challenges today! I can't remember the last time I combined more than two challenges into one project...

#1 - Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS to heat emboss. I embossed the crab & the sentiment in black!

#2 - The Play Date Cafe color challenge to use Red, Orange, Brown, & Turquoise!

#3 - Pals Paper Arts sketch!

The color combo led me to this new dp from the summer mini catalog, Island Oasis. For some reason, I didn't get the great coordinating stamp (it's on my next order), so I pulled out Crab & Co. which has been retired for a while.

I stamped the crab on watercolor paper with Versamark, then I heat embossed him with black ep. I colored him with Stampin' Write Markers.

The rest is pretty self explanatory! Thanks for stopping by!!!
