Pirate Tilda and a Special thank you

Hello and good evening,
This is one of the cards I've been working on today, I loved making this card because of these special papers are Maja Design papers and I've been trying to get my hands on these for ages...
then my good friend Arjette helped me find the shop and they arrived today so a very Special Thank you to Arjette (I love my blogging friends, you're so very kind and helpful)
Here's the piccys ...

and the inside...

The Papers are called Life by the sea by Maja Design (love them)
I really had to force myself to cut them I just wanted to look at them all day but I knew they would be perfect for the TOMIC challenge.
I used the Tim Holtz distress tool to distress the edges then layered & sewn them to blue card and I painted the egdes with Tim Holtz crackle paint (Ooh I have had fun today) other embellishments are cheescloth, raffia, anchor charm & blue brad, a piece of cardboard painted edges and added bakers twine and a large blue pearl and the sentiment is 'Best Friends'

1) TOMIC #7 ~ Nautical
2) Dutch Magnolia Challenge ~ Summertime
3) Creative stamp friends challenge ~ Summer
4) Fussy & Fancy Challenge ~ Summer
5) Paper Cutz Challenge ~ Anything Goes

...and that's it for now, I want to spend some time blog hopping so see you over at your place in a few minutes :o)

Thanks again Arjette and thank you to all who come to view my card.
luv & hugs xx
