A Gem Of A Challenge (94) - Anything With A 'B' (Bird/Boat/Banner/Blue)

When my sons were children, school holidays were a time for dressing up and make believe.  Where a cardboard box would become a pirate ship and a wooden spoon turned into a cutlass. Their imaginations would keep them entertained for most of the day.

I made this card for my great nephews birthday, hope he likes it.  First I covered the base card with stripey paper and then cut an aperture.  Into the aperture I placed my decoupaged image.  I then punched three borders and layered them.  I placed my decoupaged pirate birdie at one end and added my sentiment banner which I coloured with promarkers.  The embellishments have been stamped and coloured with chalks.  A number three on the ship's wheel finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
