Ahoy Matey!

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing this adorable pirate card. The dies are from the new Pirates die release combined with an older die set.  This card was so much fun to put together with its masculine theme!
The Pirate and Ahoy Matey are from the newest die release.  I love the oversized pirate looking for his next treasure.  I also used the Map and Spyglass die set for my card.
The background was created by blending a few different colors of inks.  The top layer was torn around the edges to look like a rustic map.  The torn edges add a lot of texture to the basic background.
To build my card, I first added the Ahoy Matey sentiment and anchored the map and spyglass in the corner above.
Next, the pirate was affixed on my card.  I wanted him to look like a pirate captain standing on a ship's deck
For a finishing touch on my card, I add some punched out dashes, leading from the sentiment to the map.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:
