Be Mine & A Pirates Life for Me!

Penny Black Saturday (Embossing)
This week at Penny Black Saturday you were to use embossing on your project. Well I wanted to make a Valentine tablet with my bind it all. I covered both pieces of chipboard with my paper with a glue stick I sanded the edges and distressed them with Walnut distressed ink.I then used the Zutter corner rounder on the edges. I used my bind it all and punched the holes and then bond the coils. I used my Martha Stewart border punch and then my cuttlebug heart embossing folder and layered it to the tablet. I added prima flowers and the quickut leaf die. My friend Jacqui had sent me this gorgeous charm and I added it with some chain from one of the flowers. The Penny Black image was colored with my copic's and spica glitter pens and then cut out with my coluzzle heart template.

Here is a close up of the charm and embossing

High Hopes (Torn Paper)

This week the challenge at High Hopes is torn paper. I colored the High Hopes Pirate image with my copic markers and spica glitter pens and took some map paper and torn around the edges of it and then distressed it with Walnut distressed ink. I mounted the image and added a photo holder in the top of it. Used my nestibilites for the wording and added some brads to the edges of it. I also tied some help cord around my sword charm and glued it to the card.
I am also going to be sending this card to Tina's grandfather. He is going to be having his 88 birthday the 21st and we hope he gets showered with tons of birthday cards.
