Ahoy there, Matey!!

Hi! Are you happy that it's mid week?  I sure am!! Except for wishing it was Friday! LOL!  There's a new challenge up today on the I Brake for Challenges blog!!  We want to see your Halloween cards!! Come on, you know you want to play!  Please enter!  You have two weeks to do so!! And, you don't have to use an IBFS image, but if you have some why not use 'em!

 I used the Rick St. Dennis Pirate Costume bear for my card. You can find it HERE!! 
He's very cute for a halloween card or for that little Pirate lover in your life!  I know we have one or two in my family!!
I used a black card base and then a layer of Cherrry Cobbler.  On top of that is some Graphic 45 paper from my stash ( I love the stripe!).  then a nestabiliy shape and then my image, colored in copice and stamped on express it blending card.  I used the E family for the bear fur- E31, 33, 35 and than a darker one.  The gray black is the C family of cool grays..  There's a little BG11 on his white shirt and some around the image as well.
The sentiment is an oldie from American Art Stamp.  My pearl placement is a little funny, but I wanted the dark gray pearls on this so badly that I left them on!
Hope you like and hope you will consider playing along with us!!
Here's the BLOG with details.  (I post early, so if it's not there yet, please check back later-it will be!!)
Thanks for coming by the cottage!
