Karen Burniston's June Designer Challenge - What's in a name?

This month Karen Burniston's Design Team was challenged to use dies with our initials - hence the title "What's in a name?"  I chose Rocky the Crab (of course), Ring Accordion and the mask from Props 3.
I die cut Rocky from Whisper White that had Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet already applied to it - basically creating a sticker so I can cover it with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter.  I also did the same with the little shells but covered it with Solar Gold & Cool Diamond.

I created the sentiment using Alphabet 1 and the shell from Rocky the Crab to say "Let's Shell-A-Brate".  Funny story, my son likes to tell me this joke "How does a crab celebrate his birthday?"  The answer of course is "He shell-a-brates".  He knows I love puns and jokes.

I used the Ring Frame Edges to create a glittery sun effect on the rings.  I stamped the sentiment using a Stampin' Up! set called Endless Birthday Wishes.
Stop by the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog on Wednesday when Karen will have a video tutorial and a post of the entire teams' creations.

Happy Stampin',
