Sketch Time at Crafty Sentiments

Good morning to you all, well here we are it's Tuesday and that means its time for a new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments and this week its a sketch.  The thing I love about sketches is how different everyones cards are even though they have used the same sketch!  Here is the sketch
and here is my card using the sketch.  I have tried to give my whole card a vintage feel even though my image is modern and cute.  My papers are Bo Bunny and the music paper is from an old music magazine that I bought in a charity shop.  I have coloured my image of Billy & Primrose 'A Christmas Song', available at the Crafty Sentiments Store, with copics and tried to keep the colours muted, once I had finished colouring I rubbed over the whole image using a cotton wool ball and caramel ink and then distressed the edges and inked over them with espresso ink, I also distressed and espresso inked all the different layers.  I havent added any other embellishments or sentiment as I really didnt feel that it needed them.

Ok, so you've seen what I have done, dont forget to check the rest of the DTs awesome work over at the Crafty Sentiments challenge blog and then its over to you to join in with the fun and we look forward to visiting your wonderful creations.
