Birthday . . . ahoy!

The current challenge on The Lollipop Ladies blog is: Pirate Lollies with the optional challenge of water.  And here's the inspiration photo:
There are 4 weeks to play along this time as we are looking for some new Design Team members.  Today is my first post of the challenge; I'll be back again with another project in two weeks.  Come and play along; you've got three more weeks and there is a fabulous prize.  But it will only be given away if we have more than 7 entries.  There's only one so far!
So, here's my take on the challenge.  Isn't this little guy so cute!?  The map is a free image I found online.  I printed it out onto kraft paper to give is a more aged parchment map-y feel to it.  Then I colored in parts of it with colored pencils.  I had to hide the "x" marking the spot under my circle, but there was just no way for me to let it show.  

DRS #76--The Letter "B" (I used a Button and the pirate has a Bandana and Boots, he is also a Boy and it's a Birthday card)
Sister Act #13--anything goes
Squigglefly #26--Purple Passion (it was hard to use purple on a boy card, but I think it really works well)
Desert Island Craft Challenge # 57 (use at least 3 of the following: I used #1 {my map is a picture of outside, right), #6 twine, #9--plus, I think I should get a bonus for using a map of a desert island, ha!)
1. Let's go outside
2. flowers
3. step card
4. rainbows
6. ribbon/twine
7. paper piecing
8. emboss it
9. dies/punches
10. metal
One Crazy Stamper--use kraft paper

Stamps: Squigglefly "Pirate Kids"; SU! sentiment
Dies: spellbinders standard circles, large
