Pirate Tilda


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week so far. A card today using a sweet Pirate Tilda water coloured with distress inks and cut out with a nestabilities labels die other die cut layers are bazzill card and Magnolia scull and crossbones paper. I've added white silk ribbon, glitter glue, pearl pens and large gem stone to decorate. I'm entering my card into the Magnolia Down Under challenge, my first time entering this challenge although I don't know why :D. There's some amazing inspiration from the design team there and the theme is birthdays.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're very much appreciated.
