Better Late

Than never.  I'm not quite myself the last couple days.  Hopefully things are getting back on track.

This card is for Wednesday's Cooking It Up With Katie challenge.#75 "A Group of Green Girls".  Are you new to Katie's challenge?  Well every week Katie gives you a recipe, this week it's:
Start with a Girl (or something Girlie)
Add a little (or a lot) of Green
Include a Group (more than 2 of the same thing).

This week the challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.

Sorry, I don't have a photo of the inside and I don't know the who made the pirate map paper, it's been in my stash forever as if it were waiting for this image.  It's probably left over from years ago when my daughter was a pirate for Halloween.  The strips of dp on the crossbars are from Basic Grey's "Origins" and that great deep dark green cs is from Stampin' Up.  For the groups I used three bows, three crossbars and three pearls, it's always easy to ass three embellies to a card.  For the girl, I used the Sassy Pirate.  Here's what I like about the girls at Sassy.  They're fun to color, they're sassy and a little sexy without being thrashy.  There are also images of men, images of couples, and images of heroines from books ans movies.  Go take a look and then get busy making a card so you can have a chance to win a Sassy prize. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Sassy Studio Designs - Once Upon a Time - Pirate Penny
ink - hp printer
paper - pirate map (unknown); Stampin' Up "Handsome Hunter" and "Certainly Celery"; Basic Grey "Origins" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Queen and Co pearls; burlap twine; Blue Moon key charm
