Ayyyyyyeeeeee Matey

"Avast ye cookie!"-Capt. Hook from Shrek the Third. That is my husbands favorite line from that movie and I couldn't help thinking of it when I was making this card for the Argh Matey Simple Sunday Challenge over on the Getting Cricky blog. :) Here is what I came up with...
The patterned paper is DCWV and the card stock is Recollections.
Here is a side look at the treasure chest. I used Elmer's Craft Medium Pop Up Glue Dots to give the chest some dimension.
I cut the word, treasure chest, and map with my Making Memories Slice using the Under the Sea card. The border punch is Fiskars.
Here is a close up of the treasure chest. I used some DCWV glitter paper for the shadow to look like gold, and I added some Studio G rhinestones in various colors and sizes to look like jewels. I cut the treasure map out with some patterned DCWV paper to give it a little bit of texture. :)

Hope you like it! :) I actually cut out a few different shapes with my Slice before I settled on these two. I got discouraged for a bit and then when I put these two die cuts together I really liked how it looked and now I really like this card. It's different and outside of my comfort zone. Thanks for looking! Hope you have a wonderful Leap Year Day! Feedback is always appreciated! :)
