Pirate Ship

It's time for a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme for the next fortnight is Don't be a Square (Anything BUT Square).

I decided to use the fabulous Pirate Andy Digi Stamp available in the Pink Gem Designs Shop.  I used the coloured image and decided to make him a ship.


I used my Dutch Doobadoo Sail Boat Mask and Kraft card stock along with some papers from NitWit Collections.  The anchor and ships wheel are from the Joycrafts Seashore Die collection, I inked them both whilst still in the die.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Stamping Boutique Challenge 79 - Masculine
Brown Sugar Challenge 192  - Anything Goes
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge 113 - Something Beginning with A (Anchor and Andy)

Make sure you pop over to the A Gem of a Challenge blog and join us for our Don't be a Square challenge and don't forget to visit the Pink Gem Designs Shop to take a look at all of the fabulous Digi Stamps and Kits that are available, grab a coffee and have a leisurely browse whilst you are there.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - make sure you check out my Birthday Candy HERE.
