Happy Birthday matey Card

Created this Birthday card using a muse studio buried treasure stamp set. Thought outside the box as in outside for buried treasure for the sketch. First thing that came to mind for sketch as in left & right side of card was to use twine but then I thought what about using the faux stitching stamping with X marks the spot for buried treasure. Stamped the sentiment. Hand tore the edges of the Kraft cardstock sentiment tag for distressed treasure map look. For a Where's Waldo - Can you find the matey's parrot that I added stickles to?

Supplies List 

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper:  cardstock - Kraft, green, red

Spellbinder: Nest - Classic Ovals, Labels Twenty-Three
