Eclectic Ellapu #48: For A Boy

Hello there, my friends! It's time for another Eclectic Ellapu challenge. Our hostess this week is the lovely Sheena and she wants us to make a project "For A Boy". Let's get straight to it, shall we? Here's my contribution to this week's challenge:

The background paper, sentiment and image are from PolkaDoodles "BonBon Belles" CD.  This is  birthday card for a dear friend who is an officer in the Navy.  

Here's a close-up of the cute pirate. We've always suspected the Officer's true vocation lies elsewhere! 

A simple birthday message inside from WMS "Half Pint Heroes".

Freshly Made Sketches #104 - sketch
Jo's Scrap Shack #18 "Anything Goes"
Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #195 "Pirate"
Word Art Wednesday #98 "Anything Goes Inspirational"
