Dad in Jumper

Afternoon all, I hope this finds you well and enjoying a good start to your week.
I have had a busy day, doing the 'snagging' from decorating the kitchen turned into then painting the top rail of the stair bannisters and then the window ledge and part of the skirting in my bedroom! After that I decided to treat myself to a few hours in my craft shed as I wanted to make a couple of cards and some Halloween treats ready for Friday.
My card today was made for my daughters boyfriend-he's into music but I've done that on his cards SO many times I thought it was time for something different. I received this fab Time for Tea image from a recent challenge win and thought it was perfect for making his card.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers, cut it out with my xcut die and made a faux nestie. The papers are from Papermania's Craft Christmas pack. I stamped a sentiment and die cut a backing for it then punched a couple of stars to finish off:

I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday which is this one:
