Argh!!  Pirates!!  That is what we have for you today.  It's my Spring Break so I enlisted the help of my 8 year old with colors on my card today.  She was certain that the pirate's tank top should be dirty so we looked for a beige/brown color until we found just the one she was looking for.  Of course, she picked red for his cap.  I added a couple of red accents to match.  Wood grain, like ships planks also worked into my card. We have a little over six months until Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 9th) so you can have plenty of pirate cards ready! Avast!  Ye can learn more about pirate speak 'ere!

Let's get started on today's hop!  Here are the links for the Design Team:

The crinkled paper background is perfect for the pirate image and card.

I was thinking his shirt would be dirty too, so when mine got a little smudged I kept it. I love the crinkled letter behind him. Great job.
