Best Mates

Hi!  I decided to use yet another retired and neglected stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Best Mates to make more home decor.  I wasn't sure who I could give this to if I made it into a card so I thought I'd put it in my room next to the other one I made HERE.  Plus it was the perfect time to use this set since the challenge over at Anyone for Anya was to create a pirate themed card.  I used The Deconstructed Sketch #45 for help in the layout.


I like that quote.  And I think those are monkeys, right?  But what is that one on the right eating?  Cheese, pizza, or something else?  I made it into cheese.  

I added some swirly rhinestones and black pearls all around too.  The pirate ship is heat embossed with some glitter too.  I wanna add something heat embossed to everything I make now.  Hehe. 

I added some seam binding too.  I like using seam binding.  It's easier to tie a bow with and doesn't have to look perfect.

I also want to enter this in TGF's Retro Fresh Challenge -- Spring Cleaning.  But it would be my second entry.  Can I do that?  I don't know if there are rules to multiple entries in the same challenge.  I hope it's okay. 

Thanks for reading!

Another cute project! Nice coloring. Your wall will be covered in no time! Hmmm looks like monkeys. Or maybe mice if it's holding cheese?
