My Fantastic Followers:)

Woohoo! I am back in business for now at least, sometimes it works and then it just doesn't...I didn't realise how much I depended on being on the net..,so while it's working ok, I am taking advantage of it!! 
And while I was off the net...I managed to make this PIRATE'S BIRTHDAY card from top to bottom, and created a few of my own digi scenes and handmade embellishments...
The image of this cute pirate I got from HERE.  
On the inside I created a treasure hunt map and treasure box.
The treasure box opens up to reveal a message from all the pirates of the sea, and you can also include a personal message.
I really love making interative cards...there is so much you can do with them..
Here is a list of all the materials I used: Black  pre-made card, brown card stock, nestabilities Labels 14, green and black card stock- for borders, cre8tiv patterned paper, white card stock for printing map and treasure box, distress inks, copic markers, kasiercraft script stamp, glossy accents, red ruby, chain and magnet (to keep treasure box closed)
HANDMADE EMBELLISHMENTS: Pennies, corner piece,  anchor, map, treasure box, and sentiments.
Just a tip: You could have the treasure box open with a gift card inside.
Now I'm off to sail the seven seas and conquer some quests:)
