Happy Birthday, Captain!

I should be writing report cards but my eyes are going blurry from staring at the screen so of course blogging is going to make it better.  This was so much fun.  I sponged white pigment ink onto some Taken with Teal and then offset my mask and sponged Taken with Teal overtop to give it the verigation in colour.  The sentiment is MFP's Pirates set and I used some cork for the deserted island. I really wish I had a palm tree for it.  The treasure chest is a piece of confetti left over from one of DS's previous birthday parties.  I was originally going to make a shaker card with it but I was distracted.  I just love this pirate chickie.  Isn't she sweet?

Mojo Monday is opening a spot for a designer and I want to throw my hat in the ring.   Cross your fingers for me...
