Ooh Arrrr!

Well, this promise to myself to blog more often hasn't quite worked out but in my defence I have been out of sorts for the last week and a half. Oh well, no point in moaning about it, just pull myself up by the bootstraps and get on with it.

The card I'm going to share today is for a little boy

The image is a digistamp from Pollycraft called Pirate which has been coloured with my Promarkers and then die cut with an x cut die.
The stripy paper is from my stash and the other paper is from Nitwits Landhootoo collection.
The palm tree has been cut from one of the nitwits papers in the collection as has the treasure chest, which has then been triple embossed to give a lovely glossy finish and then hung from a blue ribbon using jump rings. I've finished off with some matching blue gems.

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave me a little comment.
Take Care and Happy Crafting
