Happy Birthday To Someone Special

It is my dear dad's birthday in 2 weeks time, and as there are so many male-themed challenges around in the run up to Father's Day I thought I'd get a head start and make his birthday card early (I'll then have chance to make him a Father's Day card to enter a few more challenges later on :-)  )!!

I'm sure this cute Fizzy Moon bear is another one I got with a store voucher I won .. he just looks so relaxed snoozing in his chair! This is another 8" * 8" card, and these Fizzy Moon images work very well as they are quite big (see my recent Fizzy Moon 8" * 8" wedding card here)

Stamps: Fizzy Moon "All About Him"; Fizzy Moon "dad" sentiment; LotV birthday sentiment;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Pink Petticoat (gingham) and sei (large check);
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; ribbon and button from my stash;
Tools: Martha Stewart "iron gate" edge punch.

After I had taken the photo I realised I've forgotten to colour his darling little nose lol!! I'll be sure to do that before I post it! (the card that is, not the nose!!)
