Teddy Bo Tuesday

It's Teddy Bo Tuesday, once again, you know what that means, lots of new digi's in store. I have used one of them for my card this week.
I just fell in love with this image the minute I saw it, I love the little dolly tied to the front of the box as the masthead, it makes me smile every time I see it, so here's my card using Pirate Bo.

All papers are digi papers from a couple of scrapbooking kits I've had for a while, the card background and insert papers are from Pirate Treasure Kit by Sweet Blossoms Designs, the crumpled looking paper beneath Pirate Bo and the wording is from My Little Pirate by Snowsmoons Designs. The string was from the local market. The crumpled papers are edged with a brown ink pad and layered onto the card using foam pads, I have then cut out another Bo image and skull and crossbones and again layered with foam pads.
I'm not too keen on tent cards so tend to do mine this way if I want a landscape design, plus the spine down the left hand side with the holes in gives you the opportunity to add a bit of ribbon or some other embellishment.

**Karen,** I haven't folded the insert and then unfolded it, those lines are all done digitally, and the crumpled paper is crumpled digitally too,  I know it will have you confused, hehe!, so I will bring it with me when I come visiting tonight.

.....because Teddy Bo was VERY romantic yesterday Teddy Bea has allowed him to have a 24 hour sale today.....so starting NOW...for every 3 graphics you buy you will receive 2 FREE....one of them you can choose and one Bo will choose.

'Yo ho me hearties' another fab card. Thanks for the heads up re: the 'folded' paper insert, can't wait to see it (and you of course!). And thanks for letting everyone know that I can't get my head around what is 'real' and digital images!
