Recipe for retirement

More cards requested by my son and I still have another to do. This one is for one of the staff members who is retiring this year, actually the hubby of the main non teaching assistant who is also retiring in the summer, that card still to do.
For this card I used a LOTV image and thought I'd come up with a recipe for retirement as my son wanted something funny, he particularly likes the drink plenty of fluids point, funny how males think as I was thinking water but then I only drink very occasionally and am affected very quickly with a very small amount of alcohol.

I decided to go for the clean and fresh look a bit picnicy too and as it's for a man keep it clean and simple in design hope he doesn't mind the bow.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and sakura glaze pens too and the papers are all old magazine freebies. Can you see poor bears sunburn, bet that will smart in the shower...lol.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Kaboodle doodles-going in circles
Sentimental Sundays-use colours of native flag
Paperplaytime-red white and blue
Craft your passion-use red on your project
Deconstructed sketch-layout
