Don't be crabby Bday Card

Created this humor card using BugABoo digi, Crab Boat. Used colors for BugABoo Tues challenge whcih you can see below. I thought sketch challenges were harder for me but found this color challenge a bit more harder. Colored the digi with Crayola pencil colors, paint (on the sails), GellyRoll (on the cloud) & Wink of Stella (on the crab's eyes).

Used lots of scrapbook paper scraps. Fussy cut out the 5 balloons from scrapbook paper. Stamped 2 different sentiments (one humorous & one a bday sentiment). Used Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder.
