Yo ho ho Thanks matey Tag

Got my creativity on by creating this Tag with a Thank You Pirate theme scene.

Stamped a muse studio Pirate boy, sentiment & Pirate ship. Colored the Pirate boy. Added calligraphy 'Thanks' to sentiment.

Embossed a Palm Tree with couple of cardstocks, cut out & paper pieced together.

To add dimension: I hand tore some cardstock for sand & water, used fabric/material & used cork.

Used fabric/material: yellow felt for the sun made using a Stampin' Up circle punch & tan felt for the coconuts on the Palm Tree made using the Crop-A-Dile punch. 

Used cork for stamping the Pirate ship on & fussy cutting it out.

Added twine.
