Sweet Sunday Sketch #165

Happy Sunday!!! I hope you've had an awesome week and are ready to join us for another fun Sweet Sunday Sketch.

It's been a weird week here, and a BUSY week, actually it's going to be a BUSY month. My little girls are quite the social butterflies and have a month 'rammed' with birthday parties, so today's card is for her sweet handsome little friend who is celebrating his 'Pirate' Party today.

Here is his little card, and of course my card for this weeks sketch:-

And here is the fun sketch for you to play along with:-

 Anyone who knows me,( actually probably EVERYONE), knows that I struggle and I mean REALLY struggle when it comes to creating 'BOY' cards. I think it's the lack of Pink on them.. haha. So I'm actually kinda chuffed that this one turned out, somewhat how I'd actually pictured it in my mind (another reality that rarely comes to fruition.. haha).

I've used a colour combo of Pacific Point (scary), Real Red (doable), Baja Breeze (EASY) and Crumb Cake (REALLY EASY). I also finally got to use my Textured Impressions Stripes Embossing Folder, see it there on the Baja Breeze panel :D and I made a sweet little Pirate Owl, using my Owl Punch. I stamped the image from my Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set and used my Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Real Red Markers to colour it. Some buttons and a dash of Bakers Twine and it's pretty much done. AND, there is absolutely NO Pink, NO Glitter and NO ribbon!!! I know!!.. I may need a moment to recover! ;-)

Be sure to visit the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers for some AMAZING card samples:-
And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
