Pirate Ship B&W Bday Card

Created this Black & White Pirate Ship Birthday Cad using Digi Darla's Designs digi, Sailing Ship. Used vellum over the digi image to give it a ship in a bottle look. Cut both the digi printed on white cardstock & the vellum using a Spellbinder die that reminded me of a ship in a bottle look. Added black gems & white pearls colored black with a Sharpie marker. Stamped K Andrew Designs Pirate Tales & Fish Scales sentiment. Added some twine.
