Ahoy there!

Hi all!

Hope your weekend didn't fly by too quickly!  I'm back with a card for the fabulous TOFF challenge which is skulls and skellies.  I didn't go down the traditional route for this one as the first thing that popped into my head was a skull and crossbones - obviously you have to follow that with Captain Jack Sparrow which gave me the chance to use one of my favourite Octopode digis (available here ).

                                          I'm a big fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean films and I love the Captain Jack character (the fact that it's Johnny Depp may have something to do with it!) and I particularly enjoy the way he walks/runs - too funny :)  Anyway, that's the slightly twisted way I came up with this card -

 
 
        The skull and crossbones with the sentiment were cut with my Cameo and I kept the colouring simple by just using the Copic cool greys with a touch of colour for the pirate bling!  I would like to enter this into the challenges at Challenges 4 everybody , Dream Valley challenges , Here comes the boys , Scrappers Delight .
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by to take a look :)
