Friday Sketchers card for a little boy

My youngest Daughter is going to a birthday party this Saturday so I had to make a card for her little friend.
I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers which was perfect for a boys card, nice and simple.I used some freebie images from Dustin Pike which I thought would be perfect for a 4 year old. The papers are all freebies from a magazine! This must be the cheapest card I have ever made!
Not much to say about this one. I coloured it with Copics and used my white SU! pen for highlights. Cut out all pirate and all the other bits to go with it and stuck some foam pads in the middle of the images and glue at the edges so the barrell and cannonballs looked more rounded. Wrote on the "sign" and the job was done. Easy peasy. I was going to add embelishments but what 4 year old cares what you have put on the card? He will be more interested in the pressie, which by the way I haven't bought yet and have no idea what to get.
Speaking of pressies, I still haven't got anything for Rhianna's birthday which is in 4 days!
I still need to make her cards too, so you will be seeing lots of pink frilly cards over the next few days. She loves anything girly so it's easy to buy her presents but i just need to find the time to go shopping for them!
Well I'm off to pick up Liam who has been with his Dad all weekend and is apparently covered in mud and soaked so I have to pick him up with a change of clothes ready lol.
Will be back later to pay you all a visit.
