A VINTAGE/MONOCHRMATIC COLOUR CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ

Friday, 6 January's challenge on The Outlawz was to use Copics or Promarkers and create a card with a monochromatic or vintage colour scheme.
Here is what I made:

I merged two digital  images from  Nana Vic's Store, called Playtime Puddles, and coloured using my Copics and a white gel pen.  The puddles under their feet have been given the Glossy Accents treatment, and the DP mats are offcuts from my scraps box.  The lace is genuine vintage,probably about 50 years given to me by my mum, after it was given to her by my grandmother.  I added the sentiment from a new set (self adhesive) I bought recently, and the buttons and satin ribbon are from my stash too.

I'd like to add this to the following challenge :
Creative Inspirations Paint, "Celebrating Love"
One Stitch at a Time, #95, "Use Embellishments"
Sir Stampalot Challenge, "Monochromatics"
That Craft Place, #3, "Buttons and Bows"
