My First Pirate Pop Up Card for Captain Morgan

Hi all,  what an action packed weekend, my DS had his 12th Birthday and had four friends to sleep over, then we had their parents for bbq brunch on Sunday.  They all had a fantastic time and I am still sane lol!  This is Morgan's birthday card following his party theme, his friends all came as pirates.

Continuing our 'Australia Day' Challenge over at our Mad for Markers Challenge Blog where we would like you to use Australia Day Colours, this can be either RED, WHITE and BLUE   OR  YELLOW and GREEN on  your creation.  I decided to have a go at a pop up card.

A Closer look at Captain Morgan and his pooch (Pirate is from Pollycraft and the dog is a stamp, Morgan won some time ago from Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  Added a little special effects for the eyes, eye patches, nose and boots
