Ahoy! It be Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Some of you may recall this card I made a little while back. At the time I was having so much fun with Matey and those colours that I decided to make a few more cards, and since this is International Talk Like a Pirate Day I thought I'd share them with you now!

Can you even tell there is "flowery" paper on this^ card?
Here^ I used my "three rhinestone brads" idea for Matey's sunken treasure.
"Flowery" paper strikes again, and Matey's parrot seems to be trapped.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Confetti White, Blue Bayou, River Rock
Stamp Sets: Ahoy Matey, Matey's Map
Inks: StazOn Jet Black, VersaMark; inkpads used for watercolouring: Blue Bayou, Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Aged Copper hodgepodge, Ice Square & Circle Rhinestone brads, hemp twine, Earth Elements brads, Crystal Effects, aquapainter, Cutter Kit, Spring Showers DSP

And now for my pirate smiley fest...
