Ahoy There Matey

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing this quick card with you not my usual style of clean,crisp straight lines I decided to venture out of my comfort zone a little with this one.Oh my gosh talk about a card on a budget.The dragon and backround images were freebies from Dustin Pike and the backing paper and sentiment were freebies from Simon says stamp how mad is that practically the whole card was made for free lol.The shark fin and chest were from Creative Expressions under the sea stamp set I thought they went well with the other images on this card.Other materials used were promarkers,gems,Tea Dye distress ink and cardstock.I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather its been really hot today in the south of England scortching in fact too hot for me.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Simon says stamp-Pirates
Die cut dreams- green,blue for teenage boy
Magical Crafts-Male card
OSAAT-Seeing double(2 digi stamps)
One stop crafts-One for the boys
Polka doodles-Male
Raise the bar-What a special guy

Thankyou for taking a look at my blog today.

Hi Lorraine, just managed to get a signal for the laptop while I'm on my jollies. I can't get the big picture but I can see the little snapshot on my blog. It looks awesome. I've never really been brave enough to put things on at an angle but it looks really good with the stripy background paper you have. Will have to go now as connection going in and out. LOVE IT. :-) xx
