A Pirates life for me!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I made this card on Friday. I have been wanting to make it for quite some time, and have had it pictured in my head. I’m super happy with the outcome. The boat makes it not really a card. LOL! It cannot fold but hey that makes it different and will stand out. (:

I just love these Pirate stamps from the Fairytale collection.. they remind me of Disneyland. My kids love the pirate ride! April had given me the #248 JOLLY ROGER TILDA for my birthday a few weeks ago and I’ve been hoarding her until I made “this” card.

Dont forget to check out the Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash!
