Yo Ho Ho, A Pirates Life for Me!

I was inspired by the Music challenge at LOTV this week-I instantly thought of my lovely new Pirate boy stamp from them and wanted to play. Pirates are special in our town, we have a lot of Pirate themed dress up days so I thought it would be a good theme for my dad's fathers day card.
I coloured the image which I stamped in Memento with Promarkers. I started with a white card base, then layered up with Kraft card. I then used My Minds Eye papers to make like a patchwork quilt look, three panels of three different patterned papers. Next I cut a border out of MME papers, and tore blue cardstock to mount it on.
Next I mounted my image on a panel of patterned paper, then mounted onto blue cardstock which I tore along the bottom. I mounted this onto Kraft cardstock to really show the effect. I then hand wrote the song lyrics on a small square of patterned paper and mounted this onto Kraft cardstock and attached with 3D foam pads. Lastly I added two metal stars, three buttons and a strip of glitter ribbon.
I'd love to know your feedback :-)
