Hee hee! This card is too cute (if I do say so myself!). It's for my dad and I think he'll like it. The dark background just seemed more suited for a male card. I made the sand by dotting with my versamark pen and then I embossed the whole bottom with clear embossing powder. I also used my paper glaze to make the crab's eyes glossy. I'm really happy with it on the whole.
