You Arrrr Great

Ahoy, Mates!!  When MFT opened their vault a week or so ago and pulled out the adorable "Party Like a Pirate", I just HAD to buy it!!  It's one of those sets that is so cute and I was sad when it retired.  Well, here it was again, and even though I've been very good about not buying new stash, I snatched it up.  I got the package last week and as you can see I didn't waste any time inking it up.  At the same time, I also purchased these wave dies as well as another set of underwater dies.  I was definitely going with an ocean theme.  I also bought the Launch Party die set which you will see in action farther down in the post.

These cute little pirates are out on the beach watching for their ship to come in.  To their surprise they spot an Orca out in the water.  But, wait!  When you pull on the pull tab . . .

  . . . imagine their shock when they see a second one leaping out of the water!  Check out the look on the little girl pirate's face!  Mid-September is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" which was the inspiration for this card.  I made it as a fun birthday card for our retired pastor.  I added the third pirate from the set to the inside of the card in a pale gray ink and added two birthday sentiments.
Oh, my goodness, this was so fun!!  It took a while with all the coloring and layered scene elements and the interactive portion, but it was so worth it!

Stamps: MFT "Party Like a Pirate" and "Friends with Fins" (orcas); PTI "Big Birthday Wishes" main sentiment inside
Dies: MFT "Launch Party" interactive die set, sun die and "Ocean Motion" die-namics; Lawn Fawn "Stitched Hillsides"
Taylored Expressions cloud stencil
