What a catch! A treasure of sequins...that is... There are so many men/boys challenges in blogland that it gave me a chance to use this clear stamp set from Sweet n Sassy Stamps, chopped off the corners of my square card, stamped elements from the set straight onto white background, chalked over with brown, stitched in brown thread, used a strip of digi paper from the DAISIE company (freebie for fathers day i didn't get to use), two strips of scraps, 3d the sword, found some orange netting that satsumas came in, knotted two corners, placed some sequins in chest to resemble treasure. Challenges to be entered are Simon Says 'shiver me timbers' Creative Inspirations #65, Fab n Funky #28, Polka Doodle, Lexi's Creations #16 Something Old(sequins), Crafty Creations #72 Stitch up, Crafty Catz #37 Shaped cards, Colour Create #47 Mad as Hatters Photo Inspiration ( i won the last challenge, so a big thankyou! and lastly I've used the sketch from Cute Card Thursday inside my shaped card...hope it's ok. Hope all that celebrated Fathers Day yesterday had a good time and that memories of these valuable times stay for years to come.
