This here be me card me made. As ye can see the images me used be Pirate Freddy, the sentiment and the map. What's that ye say? Me map looks different than the image. Well... me took the map and me printed it on tan cardstock and me tore it out. Then me distressed it even more by crumpleing it up over and over. Then me took brown chalk and me distressed it even more. Until me got that beat up map look. Me repeated it on the white strip and red strip of cardtock. But on me red strip me did a little embossing too. Then me added rubies to me card. What be a pirate card with no rubies. Arrgggg!!!
