Treasure Map...

Morning all!

Gosh its the 7th may already... where are these months going???? 2011 seems to be going too fast for my liking!
I'm here this morning, (well scheduley post is here) as i'm snoozing head off in bed! I was thrilled last week when the lovely Manuela from Challenge up your life challenge blog asked me to stay on as there GDT for another 2 months!!!! how fab!! of course i said yes!!! how could i not!!?

I absolutly love there challenges they're really good ones that i find a challenge (if you get me!) lol...



So this fortnights challenge is: Travelling/journeys!
So i thought i'd really take a different angel on this one and go for using my pirate tilda with the ever so lush once upon a time stack from DCVW! odd combination i know but works really well!

I must admit this was a trial and error kinda card, i've never really made one like this before and found it challenging!!! but i enjoyed it!!!

There are so many elements to my card today as i really wanted a treasurey vintagey oldy worldy look to it, if that makes sense..... I've distressed plain vanilla grograin ribbon with shabby shutters, vintage photo and broken china and muffled the colours with water!

I've had this goldy raffia for absolutly yonks and tend to forget i have it, so i thought i'd use a bit to create like a sea net.... hehe lol ok i'm rambling! corigated card (i can't spell you should know this by now!!) haha was from a k&co kit i brought from QVC a few weeks ago and had these litle sentiments in with them so thought they'd be quirky to use!

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
*Stamp with fun - Ribbon
*Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
*Papertake weekly - Anything goes (added option of something round (brads)

Here's my card!

*Recipe*

*C/stock - Stampin' Up! Royal Blue
*DSP - DCWV Once upon a time
*Stamp - Magnolia Tilda with jolly rodger
*Medium - Distress inks
*Sentiments - k&co
*Charms
*Distress inks
*Distress stickles
*Ribbon from stash


Thanks for stopping by today!
