Ragged Romeo…

Isn’t this just the most adorable couple?  I have so many friends celebrating anniversaries coming up in the next couple of months, and when I saw this one at Mo’s Digital Designs, I just knew I had to have it. 

I also really love this combination of pink and brown, too. It’s just that my brain isn’t working very well right now.  So please just overlook any garbled language you might see.
I haven’t slept much in the last couple of nights as my sweet dog, Oliver has been having seizures over the past three days and evenings, so far he’s had 23. We have medications for him, they’re just not working.  And the side-affects are almost as bad.  Oh well, enough depressing info.

Here’s a close-up of the image, which was colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol.

I always like to decorate the inside of the card too, so here’s a photo of that.

This is a close-up of the page the stamp is on.  I’ll be writing my own message on the right side of the card.
