Penny Black Challenge - Monochromatic Brown

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying your weekend where ever you are! It's been another gorgeous spring day here and we spent most of the day outside.

I don't find much time lately to create something, but when I read what this week's Penny Black's challenge was (Monochromatic brown) , I knew I had to find some time to make a card today - I just love brown in all shades! So I stamped my image and took my copics outside and colored while the kids played.

The edges were sponged using creamy caramel ink and then I just inked up the edges directly with a chocolate chip ink pad.
Designer Paper is from DCWV (sweet stack). The white card stock was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. I embellished with a flower and brad flower center, a little bit of ribbon, and stickles glitter to the embossed areas and flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you liked this simple card!
Be sure to check back tuesday for my digital tuesday challenge card, using another super cute image, this time from a new to me digital stamp company.
