CPS165 You're Treasured

I hope you are having a GREAT weekend so far.  Today I stamped something just for the pure joy of it- and to get an idea out of my head.  During Unity Stamp Co.'s anniversary week, they issued challenges every day.  I was able to participate in several but I missed out on the Martini Sketch.  I had an idea on what stamps and paper I wanted to use, I just never found the time to sit down and make the card.  I still wanted to use the paper and stamps together so I decided to make a card- I just used a different challenge for it.  The layout is Card Positioning Challenge # 165.  What really inspired me for this card is the Seaside Retreat papers from Webster's Pages.  It's full of fun colors and one print actually looks like a nautical map- which of course I related to a Treasure map.  SO....I broke out my Pirate Madness set from Unity.  I love this set and I don't get enough occasions to use it. 


Paper: Kraft, PTI Aqua Mist; Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Timber Brown Stazon and SU Creamy Caramel (for sponging/distressing)
Accessories: Black and Antique Copper Brads, Small Rectangle Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Sewing Machine
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope the rest of your weekend is WONDERFUL and you have a GREAT Mother's Day!!
