Hoppy Anniversary

Just finished whipping up a card for my parents-in-law for their anniversary. I'm not sure which one it is for them...it's around 40 give or take a couple of years. (I figured this out, because I know how old my hubby is...)

It's a simple card, but heartfelt. Ya know...coloring stuff to look like fur is not easy. I cannot tell you how many layers of color I laid down to get a "fur" effect...and I'm still not happy with it. I'm definitely gonna have to research this technique before I try it again.  By the time I was "finished" coloring, I just wanted to get this card put together and call it done. I do like the way the ribbon wraps through the frame. It actually curved to form what sort of looks like an organza noodle weaving through.
