I know its early for Christmas, but it's time to start thinking about those holiday cards. You're thinking what does Christmas have to do with the challenge to use the color brown.
Well, this week I used an image and sentiment from a stamp set called Presents from our sponsor, Marks Finest Papers & Stamps.
As you can see, my card has plenty of brown on it even though it is a holiday card. I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sentiment Spots file set to add the vertical banners. Instead of coloring the whole image, I decided to paper piece the gift box. Makes it a bit more interesting.
I used an EK border punch on the dark green mat across the bottom and added a button with a bow.
