So, here's the envelope....we went all out - even got a Captain James Thompson stamp for him! (Captain JimPat just didn't sound very pirate-y!)
So here's the front of the card - I tried to get as distressed and boy'ish looking as I could! I used White, black, red, and so saffron for the colors - all scraps, of course. I distressed most of the edges and used the Pirate Party set for the image on the front. The only other addition is some paper piercing and a little linen thread that added a boat feel.
