Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge with the color Brown

It's Tuesday and time for another Die Cuttin' Diva's challenge. This week the challenge is to use the color brown.

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. 

Be sure to stop by the Die Cuttin' Diva's blog this week for some great apple inspiration from the the DT and link up an apple creation for us all to see.

Barb, this card is wonderful! Love the paper piecing you did on the box. So did you stamp onto the plaid paper, or actually cut all the pieces to fit into the stamped box?! Wow!
