Purple Onion Designs' New Illustrator Shari Bresciani AND the 17th Anniversary Sale!

Rub a dub dub, three pirates, well, in THREE tubs!  They are part of a new release at Purple Onion Designs, illustrated by Shari Bresciani!
I can just imagine the conversation going on between these three.  They look a little stunned and I don't think they know how they ended up like this.  I'll put the sentiment on the inside of this card.  It's either going to a young birthday boy, or an old friend who's bad with directions.
The animals and the barrels are separate.  I colored them with Copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I cut a slit along the front of the barrel to slip each one inside and added a sail and a flag to the ones that weren't holding one.
