Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday # 78 -A Pirate's Life

Another Monday and time for a Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Challenge.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was pretty busy. I have been working on scrapbook retreat items. I still have a lot left to do. It was gloomy and rainy yesterday so I didn't feel so bad staying in my scrap room. 


So with the Pirate theme in mind for this weeks challenge, here is a birthday card.

I think it turned out kinda cute. 

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this fun theme. 

Here's how I did it....
Standard A2 card base
Base paper is kraft paper and all other paper is from my stash
Bird/layers cut at 4" from 3 Birds on Parade
Tag cut at 1" from Once Upon A Princess
Mat embossed with Skeleton Scroll embossing folder
Sentiment from SMS Designers Choice stamp set
Twine from Twinery
