KWERNER CHALLENGE # 39





Hello to you all!! I was really excited about the colours this week......... mainly because i have heaps of boys birthday cards looming up everywhere, and to be able to combine the challenge with the birthday cards  would save a lot of time.
So with this in mind i went for the stamp set Ahoy Matey (SU) i paper tolled out his face, sword and top. 
I really enjoyed doing the faux stitching around the edges of the background i had my sewing machine out ready to do the job but couldn't find any red thread so i paper pierced the DSP paper and with my red pen connected the dots!! ( it actually takes half the time of sewing lol) 
This card is flying over to Australia for a little boy called Samuel who turned three today!!
Happy Birthday Sammy hope you like it Fee!

Amy this is fantastic! I've got this set but it hasn't seen ink yet - will have to get it out now, thanks for the inspiration. Love your work, I've started visiting regularly and thought it was time I 'fessed up!
