A Pirate's life for me

Good morning from a very sunny and warm Norfolk. The mornings and evenings are definitely turning more Autumnal now though. My card today is my DT card for Squiggle Stamps. I've used one of the new Gothkidz Halloween images and wanted to show that a lot of these images are suitable for other occasions. I love this pirate girl and thought she would look perfect coloured in rich purples and grey. The spotty paper is from Craftwork Cards. I used an MS double loop border punch on the grey paper from my scrap stash and placed some white ribbon behind. Sentiment and candi from Craftwork Cards. I've also been doodling some faux stitching again.
