Arrr Matey - it's Monday!

Over the weekend I picked up a new Cricut Cart, Crocs Rule. It has been on my wish list for a while now. There are so many cute things on this cart. I can't wait to try all of them. Kristal over at Getting Cricky,
kicked of another Simple Sunday Challenge and the theme is pirates. This was a perfect opportunity to play with my new cartridge.

This little pirate croc is so cute. Head over to Getting Cricky to enter your project and a chance to win one of Kristal's stamp sets.
Made Especially for You also has a challenge this week to use stitching so I am linking up there too!

Here's how I did it....
All paper from my scrap box
Base card cut at 4.25" square from Birthday Bash
Pirate and ship/layers cut at 3.75" from Crocs Rule
Circle sized to fit on my gypsy
Cuttlebug Mesh embossing folder
Background on sail stamped using My Creative Time Build A Banner stamp set
Twine from Twinery
Sentiment is wood mounted stamp I have had in my drawer a while
