One for the boys (again!! LOL)

Hehehe, was is it with fate sometimes, its like waiting for a bus and two come at once! This is the second time in less than a week I have a boys card to share. As I said last week I am not a fan of making boys cards as I cant go daft with embellishments, but I think I have stumbled on a solution!

Yeah it works, I can stick on lots of lovely pirate themed goodies, pieces o' silver, pirate flag, pirate map and ships and things.

And here is my card
