A Different kind of Thank You card

Hi everyone.  I recently lost my 14 year old Siamese cat, Moon.  I had an amazing vet, Dr. Hartnet.  She did surgery on him back in December of 2010, and that surgery allowed me to have another year with my sweet Moon. She and her staff were so compassionate with his care.  Dr. Hartnet told me that she believed our pets went to heaven and waited for us, I believe this too. This is my Thank You card to Dr. Hartnet and her staff.  This card represents  my sweet Siamese Moon with his Angel.  Ok, I tried to color the cat Siamese, I am out of practice people, be gentle!

The image is by the amazing Mo Manning. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.  The skin tones are done with Copics. Everything else is from my stash.  One thing moving will do, it will let you know how much stuff you have collected.  It was like shopping! I didn't know I had this or that.

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

2. Sweet Stop-sketch
3.One Stitch at a Time-Anything Goes
