What's Kracken?

 The whale is from Basic Gray's Set Sail stamp set. the birthday hat is hand cut fro a piece of scrap. The vial is from Tim Holtz' newer set wrapped with a bit of jute tied to make a loop to use as a charm. There is a very tiny piece of sea-glass from one of my favorite beaches inside.

The card is from Cricut's Simple Pop-Up cartridge cut in a light cardstock (DCWV?). The assembly instructions are relatively unclear and it took a bit of practice to figure out exactly how to bend the cuts or which tentacle went where and likewise the waves. Future cards will be easy peasy to put together. The sizing is also a bit awkward. It might be easier to only cut the blue and the green tentacles.
