Crabby Crustacean

Good morning to you my friends.  I'm playing along with a challenge at Addicted to CAS that was brought to me by my dear friend Darlene from Dar's Crafty Creations.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I am extremely challenged when it comes to clean and simple designs.  I just can't seem to stop myself from adding that next element to my cards.  So with that said, here's what I came up with for the challenge, where the code word is "Animal":
My card is probably too busy to be called CAS but hopefully it'll pass muster.  

And another stretch on this challenge is the use of the word "Animal".  This cute little Sand Crab from Elizabeth Craft Designs is a crustacean.  Does that count as an animal??  He's a living creature, right?  The Mix & Mat Confetti background from Papertrey Ink is the perfect, bubbly match when cut out of blue cardstock.

I'll give it a "go" and hope for the best.

I've added links to my team mates blogs that are playing along so you can visit them and leave them some love as well.
I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:
Addicted To CAS ~ Animal
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Cut It Up Challenge ~ Our Beautiful Earth

If everything is either animal, vegetable or mineral then your crab definitely fills the bill in that department, Birgit. Love those big eyes, and the punny sentiment. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.
