Why are Pirates called Pirates?

They just Arrrgghhh!  (Sorry, really old Christmas Cracker joke that always makes me chuckle!)

I've made this card for my Nephew's 2nd birthday.  The image is Pirate Bear by Lili of the Valley, he's just sooo cute.  I bought this image because it reminds me of when my brothers were little.  They could made just about anything out of a cardboard box!  He's been coloured with copics and coloursoft pencils.  He was cut using a Spellbinders large circle die and mounted on a matt cut from brown core'dinations card stock using Spellbinders large scalloped circle die.  The papers are from Nitwits Land Ho Too and mounted on the same core'dinations cardstock.  The little sentiment is from Cardcraft mounted on a piece of gold mirri card.  I wrapped a piece of red/white twine around to finish it off.


I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
