Embossed pirates

Another quick share tonight of this lovely little number...

My brother has said he would like some of my cards to give away, so I am going to make some kids cards for him to give to his son's friends. They live in Switzerland,so best to leave them without sentiments - as I don't have any German ones!!

As I know my nephew loves pirates, I figure his friends are probably into them too... but I'm pretty sure a boy of any age would like this one :) The flags are made with distress embossing powder so have a lovely texture to them, and three of them are popped up on dimensionals (which you totally can't see in the pic!)

Thanks for popping by, would love to know your thoughts :)

Entering for the following challenges:
Allsorts - By the seaside
Saturday challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Vibrant colours
Try it on Tuesday - Anything Goes
