Cute Card Thursday. This week we're asking you to use your birthstone colours on your cards and our Sponsor for week's prize is Tickled Pink Stamps.
My birthday is in March which has Aquamarine as it's birthstone and my star sign is Pisces which has Amethyst as it's stone, so I've used both these colours on my card.
Now how could anyone resist these adorable little Pirates from Nellie Snellen? I know I can't !! I'd just like to say a huge thank you to my pal Annie for allowing me to play with her stamps.
I coloured these little chaps with my Copics and added touches of Glossy Accents to cutlass and gun. The background is quite simple, just plain blue with two rectangular mats behind the main characters cut with a deckle edge nestie. I didn't want it to be busy so that the gems at the bottom would stand out more. The pirate scroll in the background is a Magnolia stamp and I 'aged' it with Copics and hand wrote the wording before attaching gems in the appropriate colours.
I feel sure Jack Sparrow himself would be proud of the fabulous haul of valuable gems this cute pair have collected between them, don't you?
Thanks for dropping by today, I do hope you'll enter this week's challenge, I can't wait to see your creations.
I'm also entering my card in the Totally Stampalicious Challenge - Anything Goes, thanks to my pal Annie for bringing this challenge to my attention!
