Paper Players Retro Sketch

I combined the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches with the color challenge at The Paper Players.  Here is the original sketch and color scheme-

I did not have the exact colors, so went with similar colors by Close To My Heart.  Everything except the little flourish was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
