Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all. It's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week our theme is 

How Charming

Yes we'd like to see you use some charms on your card! 

Typically I haven't gone down the girly route... you're not really surprised are you? No, didn't think so. I was looking through my charms (and to be honest, I don't have that many *adds to shopping list*) and found this skull and crossbones so I decided to go with a piratey theme. I even did a spot of tearing *gasps* and I told Cathy I was no good at it ;)

We are sponsored this week by Emerald Faeries who are giving the lucky winner 2 digis from their store and the lovely Joanna Sheen is our monthly sponsor giving the monthly winner £10 to spend in her store.
