Designer Challenge for May -- TREASURE

It's time again for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge -- and this month the design team was able to play with some new dies.  The theme of this month's challenge is TREASURE, and there are two sets which are perfect for this theme -- Treasure Chest and Treasure Charms.  I used both of these sets for my card, along with the Circle Tag Book Pop-Up.  As you can see, the Treasure Chest set includes a lock to ensure that your treasure will be safe.  I cut the lock from both silver paper and stiff acetate.  The acetate was to keep the piece from tearing when locking and unlocking the treasure chest.

When you open the chest, you can see all the treasure inside -- gold coins, gemstones, a string of pearls, and even a ruby-encrusted gold crown.

On the inside of the card are many of the treasure charms included in that set -- a tiara, a trophy, an emerald ring, and a ruby pendant.

I couldn't have a treasure chest without a pirate, now could I?   If you look closely at both sides, you might be able to see Changito the Pirate wielding his sword and holding his parrot.  I haven't used those Stampendous images in a long time, and it was time to bring them out again.

This was such a fun project for the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by to look.
