Avast, me hearties!

 Today is a special day, it's my youngests 4th a big happy birthday to my Owen Bear :-)  
Not only that but today is international speak like a pirate day..... so this cards seams very fitting for todays new challenge over at Lexis Creations. It's not Owens birthday card, I showed that a few months ago (I was organised for once), but this is for his little friend who will be 4 in 5 days time and is pirate crazy.

Over at Lexis Creations the new challenge for you is
Card for a Child
The sponsor for this challenge is Letraset

I've used Lexis digi image, pirate scruffles which you can buy at Lexis shop, fairy dust crafts. I've coloured him in with Promarkers. My tan pen ran out half way though arhhhh.... so I had to colour him in a slightly darker shade of brown than I wanted to.

The papers are from Craftwork cards as is the sentiment. The turquoise card is from my local craft shop along with the twine. The skull and cross bones is from my stash and you'll also find some Candi on the card and tags that I made using SU jewelley tag punch which I've added the number 4 to.
