Arrr, Me Matey!

Hand over the chocolate and no one will be hurt! Of course this pirate cuppie from Taylored Expressions will share the chocolate treasure... maybe! Heh heh.

Notes: I stamped the cuppied from Trick or Sweet in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. For the next layer I stamped the Stitched Plaid Background in VersaMark ink on Soft Sky cardstock and then stamped a sentiment from the Trick or Sweet set over top in black. I rounded the corners and matted on a piece of textured black cardstock (from the Fright Night Project Pantry Kit). Matted the corners again and stitched the two layers together with my sewing machine. I added a couple of really neat glittery bat brads (from the same kit) and affixed the cuppie with dimensionals.

For the next layer I cut a couple pieces of Echo Park designer paper (from the same kit) and matted on more of the black textured cardstock and stitched along the edges. I added a piece of green ric rac ribbon from the kit and a few black brads to finish the card!

So what do you think? Would you hand over your chocolate to this little pirate?
