Oh arrh matey

That's enough, I'm not even going to attempt to to write in pirate speak! My lovely blog mate, Nikki, and provider of [far too much] stash gave me a free gift recently - the very cute Magnolia Pirate Tilda. And then, coincidently, this week's Simon Says challenge is 'pirates'. So I just had to make a card, didn't I?! I went for a distressed look, which I rarely do and I think I went a bit mad with the fab Tim Holtz paper distresser...!

I wasn't sure what I would use a pirate image for, but that CC Designs sentiment from the new Summer sentiment set is just perfect - I seem to be always thanking someone for something!

Papers/cardstock: Elzybells kraft cardstock (bit darker than Bazzill's kraft), DCWV travel stack
Stamps: Magnolia Fairytale Pirate Tilda (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts
here), CC Designs sentiment
Mediums: Copic Ciaos, Distress ink in Antique Linen
Accents: buttons from stash, garden string, jute ribbon in light brown (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts
Tools: Corner Chomper, Tim Holtz paper distresser (from Craft Barn
