Pirate Scruffles....

It's the start of another week so time for another challenge over at Lexis Creations

This challenge are hoping to see lots of spots and stripes on your creations.

Our sponsor is for this challenge:

Fairy Dust crafts

I've used Scruffles Pirate digi which is available at Fairy Dust Crafts and Stitchy Bear Stamps
I had so much fun with this card, I've kept it hidden from my youngest son so I can give it to him for his 4th birthday. He loves Pirates, he spent most of the day today wearing his pirate outfit, even when we nipped out to the shops on his scooter he wouldn't take it off!!

Anyway here's my DT card for this challenge...

I made a scroll from some white paper and attacked it with distress inks before tearing it a little and stamping a birthday greeting onto it.

The stars and puched out from black and silver paper.

I finished it off with some gems and the cute charms

All the papers are from Doodlebug apart from the glitter paper which is from Hobbycraft. Pirate scruffles is coloured in with Promarkers and a little star gem added to his hat from my stash. The star gem is one of my first ever card making things I ever got, I think I recyled it from something, finally I found a use for it!! The charms are also from my stash.

You can find the other wonderful spotty and stripy creations from the rest of the design team here
