Gruffie with pizza....relax

I've still got blocked ears , it's driving me mad !!!!!!
To keep my mind off it a spot of colouring , always relaxing , well for me anyway .
I've used  a gruffie stamp from the stamp set "slice of happiness " from Joanna Sheen , I've coloured with promarkers , the shading on the grey fur is the trickiest to get right.
My papers are "Neroli " by first edition 6x6 pad. The sentiment is lili of the valley and the cola bottle (love this new buy ) is a die from Taylored Expressions with added gold letter peeloffs and stars. I've added a star button threaded with red butchers twine for a finishing touch.
This card would be perfect for my brother who is a pizza lover , well aren't we all , so naughty but nice!
