Mini Crab Front & Back card

Hello Ai fans!
I'm a big fan of all of the Ai Mini Front & Back stamp sets... and today I'm sharing a little card that I made with the Frog & Crab Mini Set (Sku #4406):
 I used a paper pack with a seaside theme... then freehand drew the seashell (he's supposed to be a hermit crab, get it?!) and coloured it with Copic markers to give it a little dimension.  You can't see the zig zag stitching too well, but it's a soft shell pink colour that brings out the pinks in the paper a bit.
 I always like to have a little bit of patterned paper on the inside that will show through the opening.
 Here's a closeup of the crab so that you can see the pretty background paper showing through a bit better.  This set includes both the crab & the frog... so stay tuned for my froggy cards in the near future.  Happy stamping!
Copics used: Seashell - E55, E53, E51
Crab - R35, R32, R30
