One For The Boys-Quixotic Challenge

Afternoon friends! How's everyone today? I'm doing good, having a nice week so far, and had so much fun last night making this card for todays new Quixotic Challenge. It was Judy's turn to pick the theme, and she chose 'One for the Boys'. It took me a while to decided what to do but then I looked in my Design Team package again and thought I could do something fun with this fab new Kraftin Kimmie stamp 'Polly The Wench' which you can grab here. I also got sent the fabPirate sentiment set by Kraftin Kimmie which are so useful, saves ages rummaging around in draws for the perfect message! So that's how the saucy card came about! Polly was sooooo fun to colour, love her hair!

About 2 years ago I bought the DCWV Once Upon A Time Stack in 12 x 12 AND 8 x 8 and until now have never used a single page, I just adore the papers but never found them really useable if you know what I mean! Anyways, how perfect do they go with Polly! I also added this fun pirate charm available here. Can you tell I had fun making this!

I'm going to enter it into the following challenges:

Midnight Madness-Sketch Challenge
Stamp With Fun-stitching

I also used some gorgeous black lace from Elaine's shop available here, the polka dot ribbon is Bazzill. Here's an image close-up:~

Well think that's it from me, hope you can join in the new challenge with us and look forward to seeing what you create! Thanks for stopping by today and for any comments you might leave-love hearing from you:) xxx
