Yo Matey!

I needed a boy's birthday card for a birthday party my daughter will be going to this next weekend.  I had never inked up this Pirate single from Lizzie Anne Designs.  Our challenge this week with Going Grey with Scrap-creations was to use a sketch Kristen created.

It was the perfect sketch to pair with some Basic Grey paper and this image.  I really like how it turned out although it was hard not to color a lot of this image black since he is a pirate.  I kept it accessory free since it's for a 4 yr old, just added a little bit of twine around the sentiment.

If you would like to see some more creations using this sketch and BASIC GREY PAPERS, you can visit the other DT for some inspiration and we hope you will join us this week:
Card details:
Stamps: Pirate from Lizzie Anne Designs, Ahoy Matey by Cornish Heritage Farms
Cardstock: Mellow from Basic Grey, Chocolate Chip, Stamper's Select White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Dish All the Dirt Brown, Copics
Accessories: twine, clear star jelly roll

very sweet, I have a hard time with boy cards. Yours is cute and mine is boring but I don't think my son would like a pirate card. LOL
Have a great week.
