C4C288 Vacation with Rocky the Crab

It's challenge time again at Crazy 4 Challenges.  The team was challenged to make a card with their perfect vacation destination in mind.  I immediately thought of using Rocky the Crab on beach in Sunny South Florida.
I used a decorator Accordion Fancy Label for my sentiment, keeping the die in place, I sponged the new Cucumber Crush ink all over the die cut.  I used Beach Edges and Hey There (Paper Pumpkin stamp set) to make it resemble sand.  The fins & mask are from Props 3 & I added Glossy Accents to the mask.
I was inspired by Karen Burniston's floating floor that she created for the May Designer Challenge and wanted to make a floating floor for the Adirondack Chair.  I started with a piece of Crumb Cake at 4.25 x 5.5, scored at .5" & 1" on both ends.  When die cutting, the die will go on the 1" score line.  The white piece on the top was embossed with Clouds Embossing Folder after being die cut.  Tip: cut all layers together so you're assured an exact fit.  You can see in the photo below it's just like making a box around the Adirondack.
After adhering the floating floor to the card I added some waves die cut with Beach Edges.  I wanted a tiny bit of sparkle so I used a 2-way Glue Pen on the wave tips and covered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
After adhering the waves, I added a spinner from Rectangle Pull Card to animate the pail from Palm Tree & Pail.

Happy Stampin',
