Pirate Tri-fold Birthday Card - Arrrrrggg!

Hello me Mateys!  'Tis time for another challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  Charlotte challenged us with the theme "Let's Take a Trip".  Make a project that has something to do with traveling.  It could be a mode of travel, a destination, reason to travel, etc.  I decided to get out my Buccaneer cartridge and play with it.  
 I had a lot of fun with this!  I just love that ship!  "Ahoy, 'tis a birthday boy" is done with the Storybook cartridge, arranged and welded with my Gypsy.
To make the letters stand out better, I outlined them with a black marker. 

 The papers are also from the Buccaneer cartridge and are all ink distressed.  I like both papers, but that green looks like the deep green sea with big bubbles floating around!
I pop dotted the layers on both the ship and the pirate. The card base is a file I created and saved on the Gypsy.   It's a really fun card and I love how it turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Please go check out all the great inspiration from the other team members and then join in the fun!   Arrrrgggg!
