Peg Leg Pete

Hi everyone. Here is my card for this weeks High Hopes Challenge. I made this card before I started reading 'Eclipse' the 3rd book in the Twilight series. I knew if I started reading, this card would not get made for a couple more days. Hope you like it.
This weeks challenge is to 'create a card for a dude', no flowers allowed.
I chose High Hopes 'Peg Leg Pete' (isn't he just adorable) and Polly .
The images were stamped in Black colorbox ink and embossed with black powder. They are coloured with Lyra watercolor crayons and highlighted with Twinkling H2O's.
The designer paper ( by Sandylion) sets off the whole Pirate image making it a very much a boys card, I embellished the card with eyelets and some
I-Kan-Dee twine.
Lyra watercolour crayons and High Hopes Rubber Stamps can be found in Australia at Heavenscent Crafts.
