Dreaming for a Challenge to Win

At Lili of the Valley their challenge is the theme One For the Boys. Since my only boy is my DH  and I call him "Daddy Bear", a card with a bear for his birthday is appropriate especially one showing him napping with his newspaper.
I used the LOTV stamp called "Deckchair Dreaming" and colored it with Copics and sponged some color in the background. Placed on a mat of red atop a dotted vellum mat on another red mat. Added red brads to the corners. (The edges of the vellum did not photographed very well...looks uneven but not in real life.) Dry embossed a navy strip of CS with CB EF Swiss dots and sanded a bit to bring out the white. All was placed on base card of White CS. Finished with a clear epoxy sentiment stickon from Cloud 9 Designs.
Other Challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Sketch by Melissa
City Crafters Challenge: One for the boys using their inspiration photo  for colors.
Cooking it Up with Katie: Use 3 papers, Add Something Clear, Be inspired by a Song or Music- Song "All I Have to Do Is Dream"
