It's a Pirate theme for Riley's 4th birthday!!

So, we finally decided that Riley would love a Pirate 4th birthday! I had received some Pirate images from the IRAK group on SCS, so they were perfect!

The background is embossed with white embossing powder to try to mimic a fishing net. The treasure map was watercolored and then crumpled and distressed with caramel ink. It was so hard to crumple up a beautiful image, but I guess if Capt. Jack Sparrow carried a map around with him for a few years, it wouldn't be all pretty and clean anymore!

I have so many ideas in my head! This is gunna be a great party! ARRRR!!!

My Pretty Pearl Ex card!

This is the card I made last night before cleaning off my mess-of-a-desk! Slayton went to visit his Grandparents, so I should have 1/3 more time to stamp in the next few days!

Wow! A clean stamping desk!

I made one card tonight (I will post a pic in the morning...) and then looked at my area in complete disgust! I had to do something! So, I took an hour and cleaned that bad boy off! Now, I have a great big, clear area to STAMP! I have lots of ideas in my head, so I will have to get them down in ink during the next few days!

VSN on was last night!

I only was able to participate in one challenge, but it was a great one! Laurakj posted the challenge to use only pink and one neutral color on your card! I had a blast!

I stamped the flowers in dark pink then used the flower outline stamped in Versamark ink ans embossed them with glitter powder. I sponged 2 pink colors over that. The background is also embossed with glitter powder.

I am really proud of this card! It came out better than I thought it would!
