Good Bye Tango

I made this card for my sister when she lost her beloved feline companion of many, many years. Her name was Tango and she was a ginger and white Mancoon so hence the colours chosen for the card.
True to Mancoon characteristic traits she was huge.

 This is my second post for today only because we are going away tomorrow and I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to enter this in the challenge over at Freshly made sketches and there is a deadline looming. The sketch is 

 and true to my characteristics I have turned it on it's side!
