Therese a swirl over here, and a swirl over there...

It's a swirly swirl kind of day! (I think I was channeling a bit of playschool there, lol!)

Hello and welcome to another challenge over at Magnolia Down Under. This week we want to see swirls, lots and lots of swirls, perfect as I am presently in love with rhinestone/pearl flourishes (available here...)
It's an easel card today, it had been a while since I had made one and was suffering from withdrawals, hahahaha!
I have used Jolly Roger Tilda from the fairy tale collection and some of Kellie's influence mush have rubbed off as I have gone with the pink and black :) I stamped the skull and crossbones and crossed swords pattern onto some pretty, but kinda bland pink paper with a little swirly pattern on it, then I distressed the edges with some black ink and I ended up with something I was pretty happy with for a girly pirate card. Add the usual pins and flowers and ribbon and this is what you get...And here is my darling Tilda all ready for an adventure on the high seas.

The sentiment stamp is from the Kraftin' Kimmie pirate set which, along with Tilda, the swirly bling, black net ribbon and charm, is available from Tickled Pink Stamps. While you are there make sure you check out the Doohickeys (LOVE the name!), pre-order for the new Magnolia Wedding Collection, and other new surprises in stock!!

Fantastic card Fran. Love the pink and black on Tilda with the mesh and swirls. I think Kellie is a 'good' influence!
