Snappy Birthday!

I made this card for my brother's birthday next month, I struggle with making cards for any man but him especially and I agonized over what to make.  Finally I threw my hands up and decided to go with cute/funny!  I really liked the way it came out, its exactly like I pictured it in my head, so hopefully he likes it!  :)
I used a DCWV card base, as well as the DCWV 'Baby Boy' stack and 'Neutrals' cardstock stack.  I embossed the brown with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots, though its hard to see in the picture - I wanted it to look like sand!  ;)  I used my Cuttlebug again and D'vine Swirl for the frosting on the cupcake.  I used Create A Critter for the crab and cupcake and Gypsy Wanderings for the sentiment tag that I stamped with My Pink Stamper 'More Punny-licious'.

I'm entering this in the Birthday Sundaes blog challenge to create a project using this photo as inspiration.

I'm also entering it in the Made It Myself Mondays weekly linking party at You Had Me At Craft!
Have a great day!
