My Little Pirate's Birthday

My grandson is celebrating a birthday this week and this was a quick and fun card that I know he will love. My fav Sizzix makes quick work of this although it did require a bit of piecing for the clothing and sword. The sand is torn and ink sponged cardstock. The background is a fall leaf stamp. The only thing missing from this scene is the treasure -- and that belongs to me! My grandson is my treasure! Happy Birthday Ryan.
