Secret Crafter Challenge #29 Shaped Cards & Dutch Dare Create a scene


This is the largest card that I can make using my Nestie Octagons. It's about 10cms across. I would have liked to make a slightly bigger card for the grandson of a friend, but I hope he will like this one. My little pirate has emerged from the drawer once more, I think he's kinda cute so I hope Granny doesn't disapprove of pirates!

I wondered after I'd finished it, whether I should have chosen coloured card for the background, but on the whole I prefer to have white cardstock for the main body of my cards. Maybe next time I do something similar, I can add more colour to the front. We'll see!

I have entered this for the create a scene challenge from Dutch Dare Challenge, something I find rather tricky. It's also for Secret Crafter's Shaped Card Challenge. It's the first time I've used my palm tree stamp, but I'm sure it won't be the last.
