Riverbank reflection

I was asked to make this card
The spec was that it had to include:
 1. a watery scene on the inside
2. A gatefold card with windows to represent French doors
3. A brown springer spaniel with a white tummy on the front
4. It has to be pink
There is a sentiment on a panel on the back of the card

SU stamp - reflection made using a brayer & repeated to create the river bank across the width of the card, then positive image stamped above the reflected image
Masks used to protect areas of card not being worked on.
Big & juicy ink pad (Soothing Sunset) used with brayer to create sky & water
Grass sponged with 3 shades of green, bank sponged with 2 shades of brown SU ink
Sun & reflected image sponged with orange
Clarity stamps & SU stamps used for foliage at base of insert.
Springer spaniel image sponged with 2 shades of SU brown inks (leaving tummy white) 

I hope that this is ok for both the person who requested it, & for the recipient

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave
