Ahoy Matey!


The Words2ScrapBy #21 challenge is "Ahoy Matey" or in other words, use an image inspired by a pirate or a pirate expression. I didn't think I had an image I could use for this challenge, but while looking through my stamps, I found this image from a SU! valentine stamp set, so I masked off the sentiment and just used the image. I added some SU! map paper, along with some Graphic 45 tropical papers to put this together. I added a few colorful pearls and gemstones to the treasure chest just to keep it real. (click to enlarge for details) I haven't added a sentiment yet, but I'll add one later when I have the occasion to use this card.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned because I may have a 2nd post later today.

I didn't even remember that SU! image, but it is darling. I saw your little gems which really add to your card,. Love that larger panel of paper as well as the two smaller panels. Have a wonderful day.

You always manage to have 'just the right' images & papers. And put them together so well to make a delightful card. Love that you've got the patterns, colors and the rustic twine to make this little pirate a standout! The map dp was just perfect. Well done, Happy Sunday.

I think it was Talk Like a Pirate Day just recently. He is a cutie. I'll bet he wouldn't make me walk the plank! Great idea for the map paper background.
