Adoption Card With A Pirate Theme

This card is made using a white linen effect A5 blank.
Adoption Card Pirate ThemeI made this card for my best friend Sarah, who has recently completed a very long and rigorous process to enable her to adopt the most adorable little boy Jacob. I cannot tell you how much I admire her and her determination and strength to achieve her dream …. she will be the most wonderful mother and Jacob is such a lucky boy to have her for his mum.
Pirate Adoption CardI chose the pirate theme because Jacob adores dressing up and one of the gifts Sarah had asked for from work to help him settle  was a pirate outfit.Little Boy Adoption CardI didn’t have to think too hard about how to put the card together as the packaging of the crystal effect stickers (63p in a sale) really did it for me …. all I had to do was trim a bit off the backing sheet and then work out how best to position the words, for which I used The Duke’s very old and very grubby but faithful Dymo label maker.  Simples!!!!
