Happy Bday matey Card

Please click here to enter Cuttin' & Stampin' Ch 14-20 Memorial Day. Please click here to see my Patriotic Card.

Created this Birthday card using a Pirate theme. Used amuse studio stamps. Stamped the Pirate boy & then used a Spellbinder oval die to frame it. Did some further framing by placing the stamped image on the oval die on a Pirate paper hand cut to be a banner. Used some more Pirate paper. Distressed edges. Stamped the sentiment, fringed the ends of the sentiment tag paper using Martha Stewart Fringe scissors & inked the edges. Added a metal anchor.
