Have a Swashbucklin' Day!

Hi! Can I just tell you how much fun I had with this card for my GD spot with The Cat's Pajamas!!! The Arrgh! Piratey set caught my fancy from the first time I visited Alma's store. I made the belly band with kraft paper stamped with the scroll image and then trimmed, that was mounted on a strip of paper that wraps around the whole card.
The card is standard A2 size scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. I left the right scroll blank for a message.
For the map I stamped and drew the images I wanted then crumpled it up and added lots of inking and distressing. The little pirate 'Errol' has a silver Stickles added to his sword. I added some bling to the pirate chest also.

Don't forget to check out the sweet deal being offered this month from The Cat's Pajamas; 3 sets of love themed stamps for just $33 (retail $48).
Thanks so much for stamping by today~
