Simon Says Pirate Themed Challenge!!!

Hey there I'm back! My card today is for the Simon Says Challenge where our theme is "Pirates"! This is a fun challenge since there are an abundance of pirated themed stamps out there right now.  We would love to see all of your creations with them and you could win a $25 Shopping Spree from Simon Says Stamp!!!

My card was 100% inspired by the Nitwits collection called AyeAye Captain. You can find it here. I am such a fan of their papers and these were even on sale.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Magnolia, Hero Arts sentiment
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Papers:  Nitwits download
Tools:  Sewing Machine
Embellies:  Black flatbacked pearls, ribbon

I have officially been given my pirate name so I will say goodbye and see you tomorrow for Colour Create!!

Thank you for your kind words.  Have a wonderful piratey day!!!!

Hugs, Pirate Avalon the Engorged (aka Dena)
