Pirate Treasure

 Good evening. As we head to the middle of the month, I have good news, the swallows are back! Well actually I only spotted one when I hung out the washing this morning but it's a start, I also spotted a wheatear earlier this week so spring is definately here. It's also time for a new challenge at Perfectly CAS.

This month we have a theme that could take you in lots of different directions but here's what I came up with!

This fun pirate with his stash of gold doubloons is from the Party like a Pirate set from MFT.
I stamped the treasure chest, pirate and gold on to Copic friendly card, coloured with Copics and then fussy cut the elements out.
On an A6 white base card, I inked in a soft background using an MFT cloud stencil and part of the waste from a die cut circle for the island. The elements were then arranged on top and my LOTV sentiment stamped below completes.
My stash of masculine birthday cards was depleted by my daughter's recent visit, so it will go towards a new pile!
So where will the cue card take you? It could include gold coloured elements or themed ones but which ever way you go don't forget to keep it CAS!
For more inspiration, please check out the rest of the DT here.
