Bobby the Pirate ahoy!

A quick boy's card, using a treasure map background and Bobby the Pirate download by Marjorie Ramsay - isn't he just the works!

It's for these challenges:

Stamping 411 colour inspiration 123: 'old olive, soft suede, more mustard, real red'
Stamp with fun 59: 'stripes'
The treehouse 49: 'masculine theme'
Our creative corner: 'masculine birthday - let's hear it for the boys!'
Stamp, scrap & doodle 40: 'masculine'
Cards for men 10: 'outdoors'
Shabby tea room 10: 'red, white and blue' - Bobby's clothes

Update: I knew that a friend was coming round today for some cards and that she needed a birthday card for a boy - she chose this one and I put the number 6 on the pirate's top.

One for the men

This is for Color dare 66: crushed curry, bashful blue, soft suede, old olive - I used up bits and pieces from my scraps box (I haven't forgotten one of my crafting new year resolutions) and images that were free with a magazine a long time ago. The colours are also good for Stamp away with me: 'colour cue 4 and for Dollies colour challenge: 'blue, green, brown and white (or ivory)'.
