Pirates and Princesses Challenge

We have a fabulous new sponsor at Incy Wincy Designs this week, Fabrika Fantasy. The theme of the challenge is Pirates and Princesses.  I used one of Fabrika's great images called Pirate Parrot 3  for this project. 
I coloured this image with Copic Markers and then framed the image with a life preserver  digital image from  Scrapbookgraphics  and added some die cuts from Joy Craft's dies called Seashore along with a sentiment that I created on my computer. It was a very fun card to make.

Hope you will join us this week at Incy Wincy designs.   Remember to pop over to their challenge blog to see the other great creations of the very talented design team. Thank you for stopping by
