Dustin Pike Girly Challenge

I really like Dustin Pike images.  I didn't discover him until his stamps came to High Hopes.  Of course, I was new to the stamping world and just into Stampin' Up, High Hopes and Wiff of Joy.  Since then there are so many new companies and so many wonderful stamps I have discovered.  Still, I enjoy Dustin Pike's whimsical images.  There is a challenge on his blog for a Girly Card.
As a mom of boys, I need images that work for all the men in my life and their friends.  My boys do not dig girly cards.  So when my youngest was invited to a birthday party for one of the girls in his grade, he did not want to give a girly card.  I made this one, but he said that that one can come from us.  I had made it because the invitation she sent was pink and black.  It was a Paris theme.  Very pretty.
He had another design in mind.
 Yes.  It says "U  R  A  monster".  :-)  Yes.  He is my little turd.  The girl is a very sweet girl.  I adore her.  He has a like/hate relationship with her.  It is quite hilarious actually.  He allowed me to keep the pink/black theme but the image was not to be girly.  I think it is still girly.  Don't tell him I said that.
This is High Hopes Willy One Eye illustrated by Dustin Pike.   It is embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. 
 I put some glaze on his eye, tongue and spits to make it stand out.
Other card details:  Letter Stamps - SU Best Friends Lowercase; Base - SU Pink Piroutte;  the Black paper is SU Basic Black emossed with Swiss Dots folder with the Cuttlebug; Buttons - PTI Sweet Blush.
