MFT Getting Sketchy #64

Howdy! Here's my entry for this weeks Getting Sketchy Challenge with My Favorite Things, and also using the Colors from the Playdate Cafe Color Challenge: 
And here is the sketch for this week: 
And here is the color combo:

The color names were Rasberry, Harbor, and Honey Mustard - for the rasberry went a little more to the burgundy tone, so that it fit the little boy theme. I used the little Pure Innocence Cowboy and did some paper piecing, after coloring the skin and shirt with Copics. 
All the papers are by Authentique - from assorted 6x6 paper pads - using the reverse side. I love that their papers have coordinating solids on the backside of them. 
I added some burlap, and a bow with some Papertrey ink twine, and a button from my stash. 
I also rounded off the top right corner, and put another touch of yellow paper behind and peaking out. Finished off with a couple of stick on yellow pearls.  
Glad to see you again today! Hope your Friday is going great!
