Beware Pirates!

Dead men tell no tales.... hahahahaha! That's what the skull pirate Halloween decoration keeps saying in our house.

A friend asked me to make a birthday card for a girl pirate party. Think Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Well, my retired SU stamps are a little scary, so I did my best to "junior" them up, focusing on less scary things like a treasure chest and treasure map. And pirates are always by the sea, right?

This one was really fun to make!

Stamps: Pirate Time, Beware Pirates, Tropical Party, Up, Up & Away, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Woodgrain BG; Paper: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold; Ink: Regal Rose, Going Gray, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Real Red marker, Soft Suede marker; Accessories: Sponges, Circle punches, Gold brad, Simply Scored, Brayer, Texture Plates Kit #4, Dienamics cloud die, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
