Sandy Claws - Tropical Christmas

I did some minor organizing yesterday of my stamps and came across this set I bought awhile back on ebay but hadn't used, and I have been wanting to play along with the Jingle Belles Challenges so it was a perfect match as this week they are asking us to do something tropical for Christmas!  Crabs on a beach is pretty tropical if you ask me!  (ok that sounds kinda odd but just keep your mind focused on card-making!)

Misc paper and cardstock
Used Crab and Co SU set- stamped some faux designer paper on the blue panel
Added spica pens, liquid pearls and glossy accents, googly eyes, misc brad

Have a good rest of the weekend!

I think my husband gets a little "crabby" every year before Christmas! LOL!
Great card.
