Dad watching TV - OWH Midweek Throwdown - My Favorite Things digi

Our Midweek Throwdown challenge at OWH is to make Father's Day cards:
I didn't know My Favorite Things had digis for sale! I found out when I visited their online shop today. I just love this digi of a Dad watching TV! I colored him with a combination of Marvy LePlume MaMarkers and Prismacolor pencils. In his late elderly years, my dear Dad had a comfy recliner in what we will call a "colorful" shade of turquoise, so of course I had to color this recliner turquoise. I made a brown paper button with my Marvy UcUchida button punch and wrapped some twine around the card. I applied Glossy Accents to try to make the paper button shiny like a real one. I found the sentiment rubber stamp at The Paper Source online and luckily their shop near where I live had ONE left. So I zipped down to Old Town Alexandria to pick it up (plus a few other things, hehe).
Thanks for stopping by!
