Anniversary card - requested by WIllie

Willie asked me to make an anniversary card for him.
The brief was it had to be a gatefold card, with windows in it.
The front had to have a Staffie on one side & 4 cats (at least 1 black) on the other.
Inside to be a water scene in pink & black with an island, & if possible a waterfall.
Sentiment on back of card.

I decorated the front of the card using part of a tree stamp from Kanban to make it look like wallpaper.
Images kindly given to me by @ngie - thanks SO much.
Big & Juicy pad & black ink used to create scene (which can be seen in  post below), using brayer & Clarity stamps

Detail of the front (apologies for glare from flash)
Anita's 3D gloss used to glaze animals.
Sentiment generated on PC, mounted onto ink brayered paper.

tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave
