Michu and his friend and a paperboat!

Hello blogland inhabitants - and how are we all today??  Well, I trust.
This is my second GDT card for Softpencil and this week we are using this super cute image of Michu, his friend and their paperboat and we were given a theme of embossing.
So firstly I decided to use the new sketch at MOJO Monday shown below:
And here is the card I made:
So -  I was having a clear up in my craft room and came across some neglected 12 x 12 papers that I had forgotten about.  They are so old I can't remember who made them or where I had them from.  Their colours were perfect for what I had in mind, so out they came. 
I coloured the image with promarkers and watercolour pencils and I double chalked the edges yellow and brown.  I used my Cuttlebug to do my embossing which you can see on the lemon panel on the left.  Each piece of DP, including the embossed panel and the image were layered onto tan coloured card.  I have also paper pierced around the edges of the base DP (although I'm not sure you can see it very well)
I added a peach coloured floral bow to the piece of embossed card to fit in with the sketch..
I will also enter this card into the challenges at:
