You ARRRH treasured

 I saw this card on a blog and sketched it out and knew I wanted to recreate it for my dear friend Ken for his birthday.  The sentiment inside (non- Stampin Up) says Ahoy Matey… Your ARRRH treasured.  This expression truly fits the friendship that I have with Ken and his lovely wife Sue so I created this card just for him.  The pirates head and mustache is cut from the top note die #113463.  The eye patch, his eye and the earring are cut from various circle punches, the nose is from the Owl builder punch #118074.  I used the 3 1/2 inch circle to get the general shape of the head scarf and then fussy cut it from a piece of scrap retired Under the Big Top DSP.  I added a piece of bakers twine to attach the patch and finished it with a piece of bling for the earring.

This card could also be used as a cute Halloween card or an invite to a come as you aren’t party!  I hope Ken likes this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  If he does not, he’ll just have to walk the plank!

  1. Love this one! Great Halloween itdea! My daughter loves to go to parties as a pirate and has done so for several years straight, when she wasn’t a vampiress!
