Ahoy, Tilda!


Being a huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fan, I have several items in my possession with skulls and pirate items on them. My daughter also loves skulls and crossbones. She had a pink skull birthday party last year and was a skull fairy for Halloween (picture is on the blog somewhere).So, it was only fitting that I try to turn Tilda into a Buccaneer! I figured spring Tilda would work pretty good because of her overalls and boots. I colored her overalls red, her boots black, and her shirt is white with black polka dots- perfect pirate attire. I cut a treasure chest on my cricut (paper dolls cartridge) for her to sit on, a little pirate flag for her to hold, and of course a pirate hat for her to wear. I used my starving artists beach background and matted it on some skull and crossbones paper. I pop dotted Tilda on the chest and added some jewels spilling out. The sentiment You're a Treasure is from Corninsh Heritage Farms. I plan on adding some more to the inside of the card, but this is as far as I've gotten so far. What do you think? Is she a convincing pirate? Can't you just hear her saying "ARRGH"?
