Ahoy, Matey



Pardon my fingers there, but it's not easy to get a good shot of a z-fold card! I made this last week for a pirate-crazy girlfriend's birthday. I used my prismacolors and gamsol for the coloring, and kept it pretty simple (mainly because I knew it was going to be late already, so I just wanted to get it done and in the mail!). I kept the coloring to a minimum, and did some sponging around the edges. The red "x" is made from two pieces of ribbon, and held down with a brad. Here is a shot of it open:

I just wrote a short birthday message in the space above and below the treasure chest.

I'm working on some cards for the Sweet n' Sassy Stamps release party, which falls over New Year's this year. Check my sidebar for details, as there will be lots of BLOG CANDY involved!
I hope you enjoyed your Christmas, and all is well!
