International Talk Like a Pirate Day Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome mateys to the International Talk Like a Pirate Day Blog Hop!  If you came here from Jenn over at Cardstock and Coffee, you are in the right place!  If you just happened upon my post today and want to start at the beginning, see Gill's blog over at Creations by Gill.
Okay so I joined this blog hop thinking it would be fun to try something out of my comfort zone.  I don't really know how to talk like a pirate except to say "aarrhh".  Luckily, my daughter was invited to a pirate themed birthday party next weekend and I needed a card.  I decided to get this adorable digi Buccaneer Marci stamp from Lala Land crafts and go from there.  I think it came out super cute!  I am really getting into digital stamping and coloring with my copics.  They are just so much FUN!

I also used my chalks to shade a little on the gray areas where I didn't have a darker gray to shade in and to color up her cheeks a little bit.  I used my DCWV green stack for the patterned paper, the rest is Stampin UP. Twine is Lemondrop from the Twinery:-).
Your next stop is Linda over at Fruit of My Hands.
