Grandson's birthday card
I made this card for my pirate lovin' grandson. I do think he is outgrowing his love for pirates but I had bought this stamp with him in mind and figured I would make him one last pirate card. For 4 years in a row he wanted a Pirate birthday and this is the first year he said he was tired of them. lol Oh well, will make something new in a year for him. lol I used this darling stamp from Lily of the Valley. Raided my left over Halloween stickers for the skull and crossbones and added a couple googly eyes to set it off. Used and old Quickutz die for the flourishes and had to just stickle them also. I used a MS border punch for the border around the image and the striped paper. My friend and my niece chose a sketch to use and we are all making cards off the same sketch. Can't wait to see how their's turn out. I know they will both be awesome!
