to be inspired by this picture:

And here is my card: 
( I used one of the Paper Smooch free digi stamps. )

Added a cute little Pirate hat sticker which I embellished with some stickles. Added a gem to his eye and doodled on the digi design. He is colored in with distress stain.

I used the embossing folder and rubbed it where the pier piling is for some texture. I also added french knots where it's knees are.

Ranger - stickles, Distress Stain
Fiskars - wood grain embossing plate
Faber Castell - PITT pen
Mrs. Grossman - sticker

*new font alert...lol*
which I think hope has a nautical look to it
