PIO #14 - Wood

How about "Wood"?  I'm not the most knowledgeable on what's hot and what's not but I've noticed that a lot of paper packs have a wood design included in them so I'm guessing that wood is a new trend.  It's also the theme for this week's Pile It On challenge #14.  We want to see wood on your creation.  It can be in your image (the boat in my image is wooden and I paper pieced it with a scrap of paper with a wood design), your paper or an actual wood embellishment.  The sponsor this week is one of my favorites - Jellypark Friends, offering the prize of 2 digital images.  That's a prize worth winning. 

For my card I chose "Pirate and Dog on Boat".  One of the things I like about Jellypark Friends stamps is that there are a lot of masculine images that are cute.   The boat's hull and the water have been paper pieced.  The charm is a pirate.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Jellypark Friends "Pirate and Dog on Boat" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Sno-Cone" and "Banana Split" card stock; My Mind's Eye "Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing" dp
miscellaneous - Prismacolor pencils; My Favorite Things "Star Border" die-namics; the Cat's Pajamas "Star Topper" Cut Up; buttons; baker's twine; pirate charm
