Ahoy Matey - Stitch in Time Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I hope that you all had a delightful Valentine's day with your families and loved ones.

Today I'd like to share with a birthday card I made for the Cardz TV Challenge 102.  This week our directive was to make a card for any occasion of our liking and to either use real or faux stitching.  I had several ideas running through my head, but as I kept pulling this cartridge or that off the shelf I found myself uninspired.  For whatever reason my mojo has been off and nothing peaked my interest.  Not even the 'newer' carts I bought a while back and have still yet to use.  But then, I pulled down.............

Life's a Party.  I cut the treasure map at 4" and stitched over the 'X' - thus my stitch in time.

For the inside of the card I used the card feature for the treasure chest, cut at 2 1/2".  I cut and printed a rectangle to adhere inside the chest and added a couple of glue dots (not pictured) for keeping a gift card in place.  And to keep the chest closed I added a couple of brads and a piece of string so that I could wrap it around and viola it's closed.

To tie the card together I used paper from the DCWV mat stack All About Boys.

So now that you've seen my card be sure to pop on over to Cardz TV to check out all the other fabulous designs created by our team.  And then once you've been filled with inspiration create your own card and link up to play along with us.
