Arrr...Saturday


Happy Saturday everyone!! This card is for my cousins Pirate themed birthday party. I used the cute SU "Ahoy Matey" set and the matching wheel. I tried to go for the aged map look so I stamped the wheel on Sahara Sand and distressed it but tearing the edges and sponging. I also lightly watercolored the image to give that weathered look. The pirate is colored in with SU markers and has stickles on his sword. I did some paper piercing around the oval cutout and distress the edges. Hemp twine and gingham ribbon were also used as accents. I used my oval punch to display the sentiment. Other cardstock used is Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, and Real Red. To finish it off I stamped the parrot on a circle tag and hung it from the hemp. So with that done I say Arrr.....have a great Saturday :)

Annie, this is beautiful!!! I am so blessed to have a cousin like you. I bet a bunch of people would be jealous to know that you are helping me with his party. It is going to turn out great. How about making the goodie bags with the stamp as well? Just a thought.

As a pirate nut (and, during the summer, a RenFair pirate), I must express my approval. Bravo!
