Happy 50th Birthday Saavy!

Hey, here is my Dad's 50th Pirate themed Birthday card (he loves Pirate of the Caribbean). I made it this morning as I thought I should probably get a move on as his Birthday is on Saturday!...Happy Birthday Dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I started by colouring the image in with my promarkers and edging it with black ink. I backed this image with two different brown papers. I edged the backing card with brown ink and covered it with a creamy browny paper.
For the map backing, I printed a map onto printable fabric and stuck this onto card. I then used matches burnt two of the sides to give it a piraty effect! I edged the other two side with black ink to match the burnt sides. I attached this onto the backing card and attached my image on the right side of the card. I then used gold chipboard letters to spell DAD in the bottom left of the card. I stick 50! onto cream card and daubed the card brown; I raised this up onto the top left side of the card. To finish, I raised a skull and crossbones overlapped onto the 50! and attached a brad into the top corner of the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
promarker challenge - man/youth
charisma cardz - for a guy
red carpet studio challenge - disney challenge
crafty anns challenge - inspired by a film - Pirates of the Caribbean
crafty mess challenge - distressed/aged
