Bugaboo DT Swap with Paper Pretties!

Hi, everyone!

Today is a special swap day for the Bugaboo Stamps Design Team, and as a Guest Design Team Member, I am participating! :0) We are swapping with Paper Pretties today, and they have some really cute images that are so fun! Their challenge is to create a card using BLACK - WHITE - GOLD. I was allowed to choose any of their images that I wanted, and I actually had no trouble deciding.........this is Parrot Hani. I just thought he was awesome when I saw him! I'll bet he is a greedy little pirate parrot, just happy to be "swimming" in his new-found treasure (at least......that is what my crazy brain is going with! lol!).
For my card, I created the gold background paper using a Stampin' Up background stamp, World Map, that I digitized. I did some light inking with some different brown inks to give it an "old" look. The gold layer beneath my image is vellum paper, and it is cut with a Nestie die. My image is colored in PSE, and once printed, I added some Stickles glitter glue to bling up the treasure some. I added some ribbon, and a ribbon slide from my stash. 
That's it from me today! Thanks for stopping by.........please stay a while longer, and browse! :0) If you like what I do, why not consider following me? ============== > >
