While going through my paper pile, I found some Sandy Lion papers I've had for a long time, and put them aside to pair with the Ahoy Matey stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The Freshly Made Sketch #296 was perfect to create a little scene and I used the old map paper to make my central piece. I ran it through the Big Shot using one of the Stitched Trails die to add a little trail, pirate-map style. I initially wanted to use the little girl pirate, but then I figured I'd be better served adding a masculine birthday card to my stash, so I switched to the little dude.
The sentiment comes from the Pieces and Patterns stamp set and reads, "Enjoy your day." I made a matching envelope out of the papers as well.
Inspired by the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #107, I used Blue for the card base, added embossing with the sentiment and made a square card, with a square center panel.
