Crabs at your wedding?

The power went out today - twice, and since that means no housework can possibly get done - I got crafty! lol  Thankfully I had this image already printed out, so I just had to colour it with my copics.

I've owned Hermit Crabs - they're a fantastic pet.  I could sit and watch them all day, scooting about the giant thank they lived in, up and down the vines, in and out of their pond and coconut hut and up and over the coconut husk backdrop.  Despite being called Hermits, they actually love friends and prefer the company of others.  If you're lucky you'll get to hear them *click* to each other.  We had 7 Hermit Crabs - all named and all of varying sizes and colours.  They looked like aliens if they went naked and wandered around without their shell!

These two Hermit Crabs are from Meljen's Designs. There's Miss Hermit Crab and Mr Hermit Crab, and together they make Mr & Mrs Crab :)  I used a sketch from Seize the Sketch to create my card. It's their last ever sketch challenge which is sad since I only just discovered them!
I added some perfect pearls, bling and googly eyes to my images to really help them pop.  Don't you just love the Bride's bling ring?!
