Ahoy Matey!


I'm here to share a quick card with you all.  It's my nephew's 4th birthday next week, so I made this card for him.  He's really into pirate that stuff, so I used a boat stamp from Clearly Besotted and did a quick colouring with just 2 shades of grey (CG1 and 2 from Spectum Noir), and then cut the image out leaving a white border all around.  I also stamped the sentiment on a piece of paper to ground my boat.  I put the whole thing on a piece of patterned paper, can't remember which pad this paper is from, I had it for a long time, I thought the gold embossed dragons are just so cool, and perfect for my background.  To finish off the card, I added some gold sequins to match the gold embossing and to add a little bit more interest.  And that's IT.

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by and see you soon.
