Arrrr you ready for Pirate Riley?

I just LOVE Pirate Riley - can you just imagine him for a Pirate Party invitation?? I made these Pirate Riley cards for a Hanna Stamps card swap over on SplitCoast Stampers - there are 6 of them total. This card was inspired by this awesome card by Sherry Cheever (AKA BadSherry) - here's the link to her card - I loved her little treasure map she put behind Riley - but I didn't have the fabulous Rubber Necker stamp she used to make it - so I improvised a bit - I made a treasure map for my card with my Cricut - I cut the Pirate Map shape from the Paper Dolls cartridge - then I stamped on it with one of the stamps from the Stampin' Up "Ahoy, Matey" set - I inked the edges too with a Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk Ink Pad. Riley was colored in with Copic Markers. The patterned paper is by SandyLion - part of their Pirate line. I dug those cool brads out of my embellishment stash - not sure who makes them - but they are really cool - LOL!! And here is a pic of how I stamped the back of my cards - this is one of the stamps in the "Things Riley Would Say" sentiment set - isn't it just perfect for all those Riley stamped cards??

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
