Happy Birthday Matey!

Hey Ya'll,
Well, I am sharing my Nephew's Birthday Card with you today.  This is the first project I have made with the Buccaneer Imagine Cartridge.  I got a really good deal on e-bay for this cartridge.  When I got it in the mail... my first thought was... what the heck and I gonna do with that?  You know?  I have done that before, but I always find a great use for them, so if it's a really good deal, It will be added to the library... whether we need it or not.  I know that ya'll know what I am talking about.  You're just as bad as we are.  Hee! Hee!
 So, I printed two papers for the mats.  I used a piece of parchment paper and a tearing ruler for the center embellishment.  I cut all layers for the pirate and sentiment.  I used glossy accents on his eye, the red lettering and the skull.  I used crackle accents on the gold lettering.  I also used some gold stickles here and there for accents.
On the inside, I used this really fun bearded crab for the sentiment mat.  All of the plain shapes on this card were inked with Cocoa Ink.  I didn't get a picture of the envelo-box for this one... sorry about that... but I did a navy blue envelo-box with a double mat for his name.  I also cut the parrot from the cartridge (so many layers, but so worth it!  Very cool and colorful cut!)  and stuck it right next to the name label.  He really liked the card, so we were very excited.  I would love to know what ya'll think of it.  Thanks so much for visiting today!
