Hidden Treasure

I made my first attempt of making a little boy's card. It was difficult at first but when I found this paper, my ideas started flowing. This card is for a little boy who is turning four and absolutely loves pirates! This was perfect for him. I drew the map by hand and used brown chalk on the paper to give it an aged look. With crumbling the paper and burning the edges it looks pretty good, (better than what I had excepted).
I'm working on several different projects right now, I'm starting up a website, trying to keep up with my blog, working on card packages and tile coasters to put on ebay, and not to mention I've been working over 45 hours a week at work. It's been hectic but I'm enjoying having a hobby to keep me busy.
