Shiver Me Timbers...it's time for a CCEE Challenge!

Hi everyone! Good luck to everyone who entered the PaperCrafts giveaway!!! I hope you ALL win!
Today it is time for another CCEE Challenge. This week we had to "use a die, a tool, or embellishment" that we haven't used in a long time.

Well, I figured it was high time to ink up this adorable set from The Cat's Pajamas--Arrgh! Piratey.
Since I just got it..I haven't used it in awhile (giggle) :) Also, I used some fun tab tops on this card--something I did VERY often about a year ago and I always forget about doing it these days.
Finally, I wanted to challenge myself to NOT use designer paper (aside from the water of course!), since I tend to use it a lot to create the background of my cards. I used Weathered background stamp to stamp the caramel cardstock. Then I just layered the images on the front panel.

The pirate ship is another thing I have only used one time...so I thought I would throw that onto the card as well!!!

Hope you will play along in the challenge! You can see all the other CCEEers cards HERE!

Materials used: Stamps- Arrgh! Piratey (The Cat's Pajamas), Weathered (SU!); ink-Memento tuxedo black, Ranger tea dye distress ink; cardstock-caramel (Stampin' Up!), chocolate, vanilla, white (Gina K Pure Luxury); gold, platinum stickles (Ranger); eyelets (Making Memories); brads (Making Memories); hemp (Hobby Lobby); oval punch (SU!); pirate ship die (Quic Kutz); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); dimensionals; Copic markers.
