Paper Playtime Challenge #2 ~ Use Brown

Good Monday morning, my friends and welcome to my first post of the year for Paper Playtime.  Our challenge numbers started over in January and we no longer have to use a die cut on our projects. The challenge for the next two weeks is to use brown.  Our sponsor is The Robin's Nest with a $15.00 gift certificate to their store.

Lots of people really like the colour brown but for me it is not one of my "go to" colours.  I do not mind it mixed with pink but wanted to challenge myself to go beyond the usual.  So, with no pink in sight, here is my project:

and a close up of the coloured image:


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ DCWV The Green Stack
Image ~ Kraftin Kimmie Stamps "Sugar and Spice"
Copic Markers
Sentiment ~ Michaels $1.50 bin
Ink ~ Close to my Heart Chocolate
Punch ~ Fiskars Threading Water
Bakers Twine ~ Martha Stewart
Colorbox Chalk Ink ~ Creamy Brown
Flowers and Pearls ~ "Use it Up" Inventory

And although there are no pictures I finished the inside of the card and stamped the back so it is all ready to send to a friend. 
Thanks for stopping in today.  Please join us at Paper Playtime and link up your projects using brown.  Can't wait to see what you all create. 

Until next time,

{{{{{HUGS}}}}}, Heather
