Wedding Card in Color

I ended up coloring the card myself. You can tell I have absolutely no experience in water colors...

At least it looks a lot more colorful.

Toby's Wedding Card

Recently I only draw when I feel I have to... Shame, I know. But a really good excuse came up in the form of an office-mate wedding. Even though we (me and the other office-mates) hardly know her, I thought it would be nice to give her little gift (and thus share the cost). Isn't it obvious that I should also make her a card?
She did her PhD on sharks, and her new husband (they're probably either already married, or in the process of getting married as I type) worked on coral reef fishes. Hence the theme:

What do you think of the expression on the fishes' faces? :)
By the way, the inside reads: "...but you can do it! Congratulations, Toby and Jeff!"

I'm quite amazed it came out so well, to tell the truth. I find it incredible that I had such patience for all that detail. As you can tell, I'm shamelessly proud of myself :)

Anna said she'd bring water colors on Monday. I think water colors will look better than markers or colored pencils, so I'm going to let her paint it. I will try not to forget the camera, so I can post a colored version of the card later.
