Believe in your dreams ....

I hope you are having a wonderful day.  I'm a bit tired today as I worked a night shift last night and it takes me a few days to get back to normal .... especially when I still have a 2.5 year old daughter to look after.

I coloured this image yesterday and completed the card today.  I have used a Tickled Pink stamp called Lil Allsorts Pirate Frankie.

 To tie in the red of his clothes I managed to find a perfect matching red cardstock for the base card!  I then used some scrapbook paper underneath and used some Distress Ink on the torn edge.  The embossed 'map' is an embossing folder from Couture Creations called World Map.  I embossed on some cream cardstock and then used the same distress ink all over it and of course tore the edges.

The little sentiment ... Believe in your Dreams .. is an acrylic stamp from Kaisercraft.

I coloured Pirate Frankie using copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
