Pirate Gold

I do like Carol's Sketch Challenges - even more since I won the last one!!

This time it is the following sketch:

The images really should be decoupage, however I'd had enough of cutting these out so gave up on the layering effect! I can use those other bits for another card! These were free with a recent craft magazine and came with pirate themed papers too. The blue paper has been inked and was in my stash (I think it came from the scrap store) and the 'gold' is card candy.

The sentiment has been cut from black card and I've used my lovely Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set to do it. Edges of the card have been inked and also chalked. Quite pleased I made this card as Samuel has a pirate themed Birthday party to go to during the school holidays!
