Relaxing Ronnie for Father's Day

As soon as I saw the Relaxing Ronnie image on Crafty Emma's blog, I knew that I just had to use it for Other Half's Father's Day card this year.  I am for ever telling him not to put his leg on the arm of the chair - but my request always falls on deaf ears; he always leaves his snack wrappers on the floor and he is, in our house, Ruler of the Remote!  I guess there of lots of Ronnie's out there - and where would we be without them?

Ronnie is a special charity digi stamp and can be purchased HERE so please help by buying him if you can.

Here's what I've used:

Image - Relaxing Ronnie, coloured with Pro Markers
Paper - all from the Perismmon pad by Papermania
Sentiment - freebie from the Creative Cottage/Pollycraft, cut out with nestabilities and layered onto a scalloped nestie
Brads - Papermania
Card - from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Pixie Cottage - include some metal on card (brads)
The Creative Cottage - Father's Day
Secret Crafter - I've used their lovely sketch:

Thanks for visiting!
