Yo Ho Yo Ho It's a Pirates Life For Me

This little fella has been on the craft table all week, I don't know why but every time I design a card in my head, I can never find any of the elements I need to actually make it. I hunted high and low for a treasure map and a bit like the knight card last week I eventually gave in and made my own. On the upside  making my own meant that I could place everything where I wanted :o) The image is another corker from Claire Keay of Jellypark, I am loving her images at the moment (can you tell lol). I made a backing paper with a faux rope frame and then I decoupaged the box so that I could easily incorporate the little Jolly Roger flag. I made a little aged paper quote using my favourite pirate tune, finally I put gold gems in the corners to represent treasure.
Okay so now he's finished I'm off to link this post to the Glitter Geek 2nd blog challenge and others I've been lucky enough to find. :o)
