Happy Birthday Matey!!

I can't even begin to tell you how EXCITED I am about this new Ben Paper Dolls set from My Favorite Things...I mean seriously, can it be ANY CUTER??? Before my nephew, I could have cared less about sets for little boys...cause I really didn't know any, but now is a whole different story!! I mean, I still thought they were all cute, but I didn't need them like I NEEDED this one!!
This card was made for this week's My Favorite Things sketch challenge. To play, just upload your card to the gallery by midnight on the 29th of April. You will be then be in the running to win a $5 store gift certificate. For my card, I stamped Ben on a My Favorite Things Perfect Panel, and then stamped his outfit separately. I then colored the outfit, and layered it on Ben. After layering it on, I colored what was left of Ben that you could basically his head. After doing that, I stamped his bandanna directly on him so that I could get his eyepatch perfect. I then stamped the bandanna on a piece of Rockability DSP from SU. I paper pieced the hat and VIOLA, he was a pirate...arrggg!! The rest of the card is pretty basic. The DP is from Rockability as well and is super cool The darker stripes are embossed and shiny!! The ribbons and brads are from SU as well, but the Spiral clips came from my pal Jackie!! Thanks Officer!! I stamped my sentiment, from the You Take the Cake set, and punched it out using my SU square punches(1 1/4 and scalloped). Now, isn't that about the cutest pirate, EVA!!
