Crabby Birthday color challenge CC161

Hey! I saw this color combo challenge a few weeks ago and was like "NO WAY" how can you make a card NOT look like a Christmas card when you use Real Red and Glorious Green? I guess I liked the idea of this challenge more than I thought, because I kept thinking about it, and then today I took the challenge!! SO! Here it is! Splitcoastchallenge CC161 Glorious Green, Real Red and Night of Navy. Whew! A challenge indeed. I chose to use Crab & Company. My newest addition to my stamp collection. I really, really like how this card turned out. Glad I took the challenge. I did a bit of Paper Tole (stamped the image twice and cut out the face to pop it out, and then cut out part of the claws to pop them out) The face, claws, cake and gift are all embossed. I wanted them to stand out. I off set the google eyes to make him humorous! The eyes were too large for the shrimp, so I added some glaze to the shrimps eyes. The hat was actually punched out using SU!'s retired Birthday Hat punch. It worked perfectly! I added some doodling with my white Gel Pen, and some red gingham ribbon.
Hope you like it! What do you think about those color's?!?
Happy Stampin' Friends ;)
