Ahoy there Matey!

Hi everyone
Today at Magnolia Downunder Challenges we have an awesome
challenge for you "One for the Boys" I would really LOVE to
see lots of entries this week, as we never really see alot of boys
cards and with all the gorgeous Edwins available, there should
be loads of inspiration for us all. You don't even actually have
to have an Edwin on your card, just as long as there is atleast
one Magnolia image :oD

I have made a Pirate Invitation using stamps from the recent
Fairytale collection of Magnolia stamps, plus a few other
images in my stash :oD
The pirate ship is a digital image and I have used some of the
black mesh ribbon that Kellie sells at Tickled Pink Stamps
and kind of bunch it up to look like fishnets in the first and last
images, and the little pirate map is a Kraftin' Kimmie accessory
stamp also available at Kellie's store.

The Pirate map in this image ia another digital image and I found
a pirate font and made the invation details on my computer,
leaving the blanks to be filled in later :o)
The pirate coins were in a favour bag  from a previous party
and I've added a skull and crossbone brad.

The flag is from Tilda with a Jolly Roger and the treasure chest
with parrot is a stampin up stamp. The boat in the background
is another brad. Ive just torn card to create the sand and the sea.
