Another card for Dad

I made this card for my sister to give to Dad for his 75th birthday next week:
I used the Taylor Expressions Cupcake Challenge (TECC74) as my inspiration, although my image is a little bigger than the sketch shows.TECC74(sketch)
The card base is Baja Breeze and I layered with textured DSP from S-U (retired). I added a vertical layer of Close to Cocoa. The old geezer is from Golden Oldies (Stampin’ Up) & he was stamped in Jet Black Staz On onto watercolour paper. I sold my Baja Breeze ink pad so I improvised and used Sage Shadow and Bashful Blue to colour in his shirt using an aquapainter. His pants were watercoloured with Close to Cocoa. I used Blush Blossom for his skin and used Chocolate Chip for his sandles. I added a layer of Close to Cocoa and Baha Breeze behind the main image. I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto whisper white and used the large oval punch along with the label punch to finish it off. I’m sure Dad will get a kick out of his cards. Now I’ll have to make him another one to give him from his grandkids!
