Crab & Company Boy Birthday Card

Olivia and I had the pleasure of attending a birthday party at the local aquarium. In honor of the ocean critter-themed party, I chose Stampin' Up!'s Crab & Company stamp set for this card. It's very similar to another card I posted recently, I just changed up the colors a little and added some EK Success blue wave pattern paper.

I added some Tim Holtz Distress Stickles in Antique Linen to the sand, and Broken China to the sky area. I have previously sponged both of those colors with the matching distress ink, then added the stickles. The distress stickles don't have the same shimmery glittery look that regular Stickles have, but they add texture. The Antique Linen looks exactly like sand -- which was perfect for this application.
