Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #18

Good Morning! Welcome to another edition of the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! These inspiration photos make me so homesick since my parents live on the ocean and frequently take the boat out to go crabbing! My mom said the freezer is full of crab so I can't wait to get up there and have some crab salads!!! They live about 5 hours away from me so I'm super excited to be able to head home soon for a visit! Here's what I came up with this week for the SCIC Desgin Team:

My card layout was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I moved the flowers on my card to more of the top left corner and made the center circle using the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch (118874)! Then I layered the Scallop Circle with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch (119850) and also created a 2" circle with the Circle Scissor Plus (112530).
I did use some retired stamp sets on my card! The crab is from the 'It's the Thought' Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set from the Summer Mini Catalog! It was too perfect for this challenge so I had to use it! The flowers were from the Tropical Party Stamp Set, which was also from the Summer Mini Catalog! They were both two of my favorites from the Mini Catalog! I first stamped the crab in Jet Black StazOn Ink, then colored him in with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and Blender Pens! The flowers I stamped in Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, then trimmed them out with the Paper Snips Scissors - a must have!!!
