March Retro-Fresh Challenge

Can you believe the last six months have flown by and this is my last Retro-Fresh challenge as a TGF Farm Fresh Challenge DT member?  I can hardly believe it.  This month's theme is "Spring Cleaning".  I am also entering this in Anyone For Anya's pirate challenge.
So we are supposed to pull out something we have never used or rare get a chance to show some love to.  My choice is my Karen Foster pirate paper, the coordinating stickers, and my new dark red sealing wax with the key seal.  The base is burgundy with layers of two of KF pirate paper.  The image is TGF's Matey Ian colored in copic markers and mounted on dimensionals.  The tag is Tim Holtz journalling ticket that I wrapped with some scrap jute twine because it reminds me of rope.  To tack it in place, it is taped on the back, then I used the wax to puddle over top, then sealed it with the key.  It sort of reminds me of the one from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.  The sticker is one I have been dying to use, but never found a good use for, until now.  I used some Tim Holtz tiny attachers on the corners to finish the look. 
I hope you all can pop over to the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog and play along with this month's retro challenge.  Thanks for looking!  April
