The Kraft Journal 138 Inspired by a Book or Song ...Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life For Me!


{This is my second post of the day...please click here for my Paper Sweeties Halloween Card}

For today's Inspired by a Song or Book challenge over at The Kraft Journal,  I get the Disney's Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life For Me song stuck in my head A LOT!!! So as you can see, my inspiration is a Pirate Birthday card!

I started with Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock onto which I added some patterned Treasure Map paper.  This is actually left over from favors I used for my son's birthday when he was real little. (My does time fly *sigh*) Next I created a banner with skull and cross bone paper I had in my stash that came in a kit...I love when I can finally use something I have had forever.....anywho....back to the card...I adhered to the center of the card face. I stamped, colored, and matted the pirate image (From The Angel Company and no longer is in business, boo, but I love using crafty stash) to the middle of the card to create a focal point. 

Using Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Banner Pieces and coordinating Black Banner Stickers, I created a sentiment along the top to spell out ARG. I anchored the banner with Red Baker's Twine. I then cut out another banner to stamp the Happy Birthday from Paper Smooches out of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and tucked underneath her treasure map image. 

Whew....thanks for hanging in there with me....this was definitely an ADHD post....oh look there's a butterfly....
