Pirate Birthday

Hello Everyone,

So sorry to have not posted for sooo long but last week was very challenging! This is my entry for this weeks Magnolia Down Under Challenge - to use Black and White and one other colour. The layout is the May sketch challenge from Magnolia-licious Challenges. I will also enter this card into the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge - make it dimensional, Cute Card Thursday - for Someone Special (my nephew), Saturday Secret Crafter - Metal and the Cards for Men Challenge - Outdoors.

My pattern papers are Magnolia and I've used Black and Red Cardstock with them. This is the first time I've used this cute little Pirate Edwin that I received in the mail on Thursday from Bizzy Becs. Edwin is coloured with copics and placed on foam dots. The charm is from Tickled Pink Stamps and the Steering Wheels either side of the charm are from the SU Dad's Day set. The sentiment was computer generated. Spotted Gross Grain Ribbon and Black Gems complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by,
