Magical Monday - Ahoy Mate!

This week's challenge at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes is: "Recipe."

The challenge is to make a card following the recipe below.  You can add to the recipe, but you cannot take away from the ingredients that are listed:


1 Embossing Folder or dry embossing of some sort
1 or more die or punch
1 ribbon, twine, string, or something of the like
1 button
Glitter or some sort of sparkles

For my card, I used the image Paper Cupcakes "Ahoy Mate." I printed out the image on White copic-friendly cardstock (Georgia Pacific 110# from Walmart), colored it with copics, ran it through the Big Kick using the Papertrey Ink - Layerz Mat Stack 3 die, sponged the outside edges, and popped it onto the card front.  You can't tell from the picture, but the little telescope is colored with a glitter pen for the glitter part of the recipe.  The ribbon across the center is actually 3 pieces of heavy twine which I braided together and adhered with 1/8" wide Scor-Tape.  The designer paper is from the 6x6 Authentique "Glory" stack.  Adhered 3 old buttons tied with twine, popped the sentiment, and finished with the owl's googly eye.

Play along, upload your card, and you could win FREE images.
