Flourishes Sketchy challenge

It's that time of the month again - time for Flourishes pre-release challenge. This month it's a sketchy one. You can find the sketch here .
And here is what I came up with.

I used another bleached image from Cherries & Peaches stamp set, this time I colored it fully with Prismacolor pencils. Here is a tip if you want to try it - don't put too much bleach in one spot, it will mush up the cardstock and then it's really hard to color on it. If your bleach gets out of lines, find a marker similar in color to our CS and touch up the light spots. They are not going to disappear entirely, but will certainly be less visible.
 I changed the rectangles for ovals and I also flipped the sketch to the side. The scalloped oval in the background is done with melted crayon technique.

It took me a couple of seconds to "see" the sketch in your card, well done. I will have to give bleaching a try one of these days soon. Love all the techniques you used. Thank you for playing.
