Let's shell-abrate over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

Hi everyone and I hope your week has started off well!  It's a new challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar and this week the theme is "celebrate" sponsored by Whimsy Stamps - birthdays, weddings, new arrival, whatever takes your fancy!  I decided to go for a birthday card because you can never have enough of these in your stock of spare cards...

 
 

So now you know I didn't misspell the title of this post, lol!!  I used this sweet little crab and sentiment digi from the Shell-a-bration digistamp set by Whimsie Doodles.  Sweet, no?  I used the sketch over at Allsorts and flipped upside down - it's one of my all time faves!  I am also entering this card into Cupcake Inspirations for their photo challenge.

Come back later for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT post!


 Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, SEI Happy Day paper pad
Stamps: Shell-a-bration digistamp set by Whimsie Doodles
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon and thread from stash
Tools: Nestabilities dies, Quickutz balloon dies, Fiskars border punch inside card
