Talk Like a Pirate Day

Happy September!  Time for a new challenge at Words 2 Scrap By.  Talk Like a Pirate Day is Sept. 19, so we want you to make a project inspired by one of these pirate expressions: 
Ahoy, Matey!
Arrrr!
Blimey!
Yo Ho Ho!
When I think pirates, I think sailing ships.  I bought this Magenta stamp years ago since hubby loves boats.  I stamped it with Versamark & then rubbed on 3 different blue Pan Pastels I bought months ago & hadn't yet tried.  They give a lovely sheen in person.  
The card front was dry embossed with a folder that gives an impression of waves, if you have a good imagination, and a blue Copic made the little metal squares match.  Hope you'll check out the work of my talented teammates & join in the fun this month. There's an adorable Paper Smooches stamp set going to the winner! Thanks so much for stopping by.
