Walk the Plank!

Good Evening Everyone, 
Well, the best day for a week and I've been stuck in an office all day! Oh well, I decided to try and finish my card for the challenge at Lillies Little Fairies. When I saw the challenge was 'anything but a square' my initial reaction was sheer horror! I don't have a large die cutting machine only a little cuttlebug so what could I do??
After numerous attempts that ended in the bin I decided to colour an image first! I chose 'Walk the Plank' and what does every pirate need?..... a ship! So that's what I tried to do.....
I started with a 6" square piece of card, folded it in half and cut out a base. I drew the sails on a piece of card and cut them out. I used the image to join the two!
The pirate flag and anchor were from a die cut sheet by Craft Creations. 
I used a memory box die (birthday pressie from Hubby!) to create the waves.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Lillies Little Fairies - Anything but a Square
Make it Monday - Linky Party
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Shaped Card
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
By The Cute & Girly - Boys/Men
J & C Creations - Something a little bit Different

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them.
