A Pirate's Life for Me

I finally got my order in from Stampin' Up! the other day and I sat down right away and made this card. I had had it in my mind for weeks while I waited for the stamps. We will be mailing it out this afternoon to Slade's nephew, Mitchell. He's turning 12. I hope this card doesn't seem too youngish to him.

I used Stampin' Up!'s Ahoy, Matey set. I love this set! I used Memories black ink, but even when I heat set it, it still blurs when I use my copic markers. So, I'll have to get a better dye ink pad. I put the gold brads in the corner because it reminded me of a pirate's gold booty. The "Arrr!" was printed on the computer. It says "Arrr!" because, arrrgh, I'm late! Hopefully he won't hold it against us. *grin*

I read your blog! I read your blog! =D And I think the card is very cute. I have the hardest time doing boy cards, so I guess it's good I have a little girl, eh?
