FIL birthday card ... Lazy Gruffie bear!

Another mad rush card which I needed to make, this time for my FIL who celebrates the day before Maddison. 
I found a stamped image I have had for a while from the House Mouse Gruffies range. I coloured him in promarkers and the papers are from October Afternoon. As an afterthought I inked all of the white bits with a blue chalk ink and think it finishes it off just perfectly! 


Papers: October Afternoon
Image - House Mouse Grufflies
Ribbon & Sentiment - From stash
Tools - MS punch

I would like to enter this card into:
