Male Whiff Of Joy Birthday Card meets Sketch Saturday and Paper Sundae

Good afternoon everyone
Hope your day has been as happy and relaxing as mine.  I have spent many an opportunity today sat out in the garden, always a bad thing for me as I start to make lists of all those little jobs that need doing, and actually I started to pull at the odd weed, whilst drinking a lovely plunged Italian coffee.  This year I really do need to spend some time out in the garden and I do not mean to sit on the hammock in the sun colouring my images.  Must really set myself a target for it each week, to push myself to get it sorted.

Anyway as planned yesterday, I have managed, despite the awful head, to complete my second male birthday card, you know it is really difficult to combine challenges when making a male orientated card.  I have done my best.
I was inspired by the Sketch Saturday - sketch and the image that sprang to mind for this card was a Whiff Of Joy (not used for a while), so I have created an easel card, to meet their challenge.  I also have done some paper piecing for his little jumper and so this also fits nicely into the Paper Sundaes Challenge.

Here is the sketch Saturday sketch 

Here is the card
I used a cream card base and these papers I think came from the Hobby House, but I am not sure of the brand I am afraid, was too quick to throw out the packaging.  I used the MS punch and some diamante's, and used my cuttlebug to deboss the image platform. I cut out the whiff of joy bench and decoupaged the bench, little boy and his paper pieced jumper. 

Here is the image coloured in copics.
Well off to have a lovely bath and then to sit and watch "Dancing on Ice" it is getting to those exciting bits now.

Hope you all have a good week, whatever you have planned.  Hope to catch up with you all on Wednesday as travelling around the UK Monday and Tuesday and I might be too tired to post or comment by the time I get home at night.

Thank you all for the lovely recent comments, I always appreciate them as we all do.

Hugs Kate x
