Pirate Scruffles

Ahoy there!! We have a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations, we are celebrating our first birthday, so we have a nice easy theme for you this time:
'Happy Birthday'
The DT are looking forward to visiting lots of blogs this week!!

FairyDust Crafts is sponsoring the challenge and we will have THREE randomly selected winners.

First Prize: 2 Fairy Dust Rubber Stamps to the winner (Lexi's Creation's images)….The stamps are called Fairy Dust stamps in the store

2nd Prize: 3 Digi's

3rd Prize: 2 Digi's From Fairy Dust Crafts

For my card I have used Pirate Scruffles & treasure chest from Fairy Dust Crafts, coloured with promarkers and glitter pens. The skull & crossbones paper is a digital one from The Creative Cottage , the burgundy one is from The Paper Mill shop and the parchment effect one is from my stash. I wanted to get a kind of tatty flag effect on the front of the card so I tore the skull paper and inked the edges, the burgundy on has been scrunched up and inked and the edges of the image have been distressed with a distressing tool and inked too. I'm not normally one for distressing papers but actually once I got into this it was good fun!! The charms were from my stash and Ewe2cancraft.

Inside the card:
