ARRRHHH....Two Pirate cards back to fun is that?

This little monkey is having a birthday in a couple of weeks and he is also into Jake the Pirate, so of course we have to buy him a Jake the Pirate Ship (shhhh) and I needed a card to go along with the theme of the party ~ can't wait for Lucas to get his gift and matching card!
 Happy 2nd birthday      sweet one ~ xoxo
How fun to find two amazing challenges to go along with my card ~ this sketch at Freshly Made Sketch # 171 was perfect for my card, I took my three banners and gave them a bit of a slant and then topped it off with this fun Happy Birthday Banner, I then fussy cut this and sponged the edges! and then the Seize The Birthday birthday was "Anything Goes"...bonus!  Thanks for these wonderful challenges...and there is still time to play, so why don't you jump in and join the fun :-)

Here is Lucas' birthday card, the texture on the Basic Black CS is a little hard to see, the card looks so sweet IRL ~ gotta love that owl's a must have in my you have one! Don't wait, if you don't ... not sure if this will be going forward in the next catalogue...don't be disappointed!
