Yaaaar! It's Yar Birthday!

Ahoy mateys! Are you ready for some inspiration?! It's time for Oldie but Goodie Thursday at Catch The Bug!
The Design Team has been hard at work with the older images from Bugaboo Stamps, creating some fabulous creative inspiration for you!  Of course, I have a card to inspire you, but if that's not enough, get your "booty" over to Catch The Bug and check out the inspiration from some other team mates!

My card today uses the sketch at Pink Gem, for my card layout.  The image is AKV Pirate Anchor
from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used dotted embroidery paper from my stash, for two of the circles. The pirate paper is new, bought specifically for this image.  The sentiment is punched and matted with circle punches.  I recycled the buttons from old clothing, and added some twine to the centers.

This turned out to be a fun masculine birthday card!
