Pirate Valentine — FMS171

One of the best things about Wednesdays is that we have a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week you are in for a treat, as the truly talented Rita Wright has a fun sketch for us.

I decided to make another Valentine’s card and I really wanted some coloring therapy, so I used one of the adorable images from the Hey, Valentine set.  This little pirate is so sweet, and so fun to color.

Pirate ValentineI added a strip of dsp from the Stacked with Love dsp stack, and cut a strip of stars using one of the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  I also added a little star clip from the Essentials Hardware Clips.

Pirate Valentine Close UpI wasn’t comfortable with all of the white space (I know — It’s a fault of mine), so I added some Crushed Curry splatters, and called it a day.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We always love looking through the gallery and seeing what you make.  You should hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and see what the rest of the design team made.  They always inspire me.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
