A Sloth and Books--What more do you need?

I was inspired recently by a picture of a sloth reading a book and have been waiting to find a challenge that inspired me to add a sloth a books.   This is it.  I found myself using the marker technique quite a bit on this card.  I used a Crumb cake marker to color only the sloth on the stamp and then had him hang from a bookshelf and colored him in using Watercolor pencils and a blender pen.   I then colored in the books on the shelf and the ones he is holding with In-Color Markers.  
I thought the Tutti Frutti DSP looked a little like wallpaper and was perfect for this card.  What do you think?
