This week Sweet Sketch Wednesday is being sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique. Sally Ann is a long time sponsor of mine...clear back from the very beginning. She always sponsors once a month.


When I saw this sweet Digi at Sally's store I knew I must do it. I love how it turned out. The pictures are never near as good as the card either.

I went hunting for Pirate paper and found this adorable paper at Hobby Lobby.  When using the paper I realized that my ships would not show if I put three embellishments there. But then I realized, hey I could get three ships right there on the side and they would fit perfectly. So there ya have it. Then I took those three ships and put crystal effects over the ships and cut them out and used them as embellishments. It all fit and worked so perfectly as if I had planned it.

Well the design team has cooked up some lovely eye candy so bug on over and take a look. While you're at it, have a SWEET day!!!


  1. Oh Arlana, this is absolutely the cutest card. I love the red, black and teal together. You image is adorable. And where did you find those papers? They are perfect! Super, super cute!!!
    Hugs, Nancy

  4. Ahoy little pirate! Arlana, this is such a cute pirate card! I love how you made those ships show on your card! They look fabulous popped with the glossy accents! I also love the polka dot paper with his little scarf hat! Have a great day!
