Ahoy Matey!

Our SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE this time was to use the ship background freebie from DUSTIN PIKE. We could use it any way we chose so I used DP's pirate dragon which was also a freebie. His images are the cutest and they are all digital so they can be sized any way you like. And in this case I printed the dragon's mirror image so that I could have dueling dragons.

I also put them on a rolling mechanism (tutorial here)so that they could move back and forth while they were dueling. I had a hard time taking a picture of this one because I couldn't stop playing with it.

Hop on over to the SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE BLOG and join in on the fun. The prize last week was a Basic Grey Collection Pack 12"X12" LIME RICKEY! They always have super prizes and it is random draw so everyone has a chance to win. Good luck!

Oh yeah, and if you haven't seen Pirates of the Caribbean, parlay is part of the pirate code that says a person has to be taken to see the captain without being harmed or something like that. It just popped into my head as I was making the card and it fit at the top so I used it, probably should have used en garde though.

Stamps - Dustin Pike
Paper - SU, black, creamy caramel
Etc., Pirate dimensional stickers, brads, eyelets, twine
