Dad's 70th

My lovely Dad will be 70 in March, this is the card i've made for him, plus I added a short sentiment inside... 

My Dad snoozes, infact he snoozes a lot more than he used to, well he is almost 70, so is entitled to eh? but of course, according to Dad, he's never able to drop off to sleep! ;)
I was going through my pooter and saw this digi which made me think of my Dad, although Dad isn't quite as hairy lol.
The image was a freebie and is saved on my pooter as one by Jens Digi Stamps, so I searched for the image on the website, but can't find it to link to it :(
I coloured bear with my promarkers (caramel, cocoa and umber) then stamped the '70' and coloured that with caramel too.
The checked paper is by sizzix.
The word 'Dad' was die cut using die-namics By The Letter dies, I cut it from blue cardstock but used the negative from it by putting kraft cardstock behind it so that it looks debossed.
I printed off the sentiment from the pooter, originally I wanted to add it to the front of the card, but then decided to put it inside instead.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Here come the Boys - BINGO
(blue, free, image) or if the die cut negative counts: blue, die cuts, patterned paper
Sentimental Sundays - negative space.
Totally Gorjuss - K.I.S.S
MAWTT - birthdays
