Verve Stamps WCMD challenge, sketch 4

Made for Verve Stamp's World Card Making Day Release Week challenge, sketch 4. 
I just won this Penny Black clear set and couldn't wait to try it out, so I used the teddy and bird for my main panel, coloring them with Prismacolor pencils and blending with mineral spirits, then distressing the edges before framing it in red.    I followed the sketch as exactly as I could. 

Supplies:  green, dark red, white cardstocks, graphic 45 Christmas Past Collection The Holly and the Ivy, unknown scrap of music paper, Penny Black  xmas snapshots 30-055, versafine onyx black, scattered straw and vintage photo distress inks, Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, dotted red organza ribbon, red gems
