It's Yaar Birthday

I originally printed the background scene on this from Birds Cards for a different challenge, but I didn't have time to make that card, so I decided to use it today. I printed the pirate from Pollycraft to go along with it and coloured them both with promarkers - cornflower, duck egg, china blue, marine, chestnut, henna, sandstone, caramel, buttercup, mustard, canary, blush, lime green, pear green, amber and bright orange, sponging in the sky with light blue pigment ink from papermania.

The papers were freebies from Craft's Beautiful magazine a couple of months ago and I layered it all on blue card, using dimensionals to give the scene and the pirate a little extra lift. The sentiment is computer generated and I added some gems to finish, including one as an earring for my intrepid little pirate :)
