Thanks Matey!!!

This card actually came together pretty quickly!
I used my Cricut Imagine (that I have not used FOREVER) and the Cartridge Buccaneer.

I created my pirate at 5.5 and separated the shapes so that I could attach them with pop dots and create some depth.  The face, hat and boots are all cut separately and attached.  The background (skulls) was cut at 6.0 and then trimmed to 5.75" square, I used the square stock photo on the imagine and then filled it with the skull pattern on the cartridge.
I added a little twine to the bottom of the card and a sentiment and attached the pirate with more pop dots.

(a little info...I hadn't used my Imagine for so long when I tried to print I was getting funky colors, I tried cleaning the print heads, but that didn't help.  I ended up taking out my printer cartridges and cleaning the bottoms with some rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip and it worked like a charm.  Just a heads up!!!)

I am entering this project in the My Craft Spot- Pop It Up!!! Challenge
