Hanging out on Father's Day

It's Father's Day on Sunday and unfortunately I can't mail this card that I made to my Dad (Canada Post is on strike) but at least he can see it online.
I used a digital stamp from Bugaboo which I coloured using Copic markers. I tried a different (for me) technique for the bathrobe - I coloured it with blue and then dabbed at it with the blender pen to get a fuzzy-looking texture. I also coloured the dewdrops (they started clear) which are placed in the corners. The image is framed with a Spellbinders' diecut with a couple of matting layers. The card design is this week's Midnight Madness sketch challenge.
