so much like my boy!

This post is very late for me today as I have been running around today - a lot more than usual, taken doggy to the vets and have been given drugs for him, he fits in well with me at the moment! I made this card a few days ago and I love it... The stamp from Crafters Companion is coloured with my pro-markers and i love the detail that is picked up from the stamp when coloured. I have outlined the image in grey 1 to make it pop... Do you think it does??

I have then mounted the image on green and blue card and then again on to a top note of newspaper print on which I inked the edges... I then found the next stage very hard - I ripped the panels of card and used the background - I also did the same for the sentiment.
This is a very different card for me - but I am liking the effect!
thank you for taking the time to look
