all about brown

I've made a dark brown card based on sketch provided by Unscripted Sketches #85 and also the monochromatic idea from Caardvarks Monochromatic Challenge (the final challenge). It's so bad to hear that this would be the final challenge offered by Caardvarks, where this is only the first time i enter their challenge.

As I don't have any dark brown distress ink at the moment, I used blending tools to blend the Rich Cocoa Memento dye ink on the Natural card stock. Also, the lace border was stamped with rich cocoa ink to create the same color tone.

Card Stock: White, Natural (Bazzill)
Patterned Paper: Moof
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Edge Punch: Apron Lace (Fiskars)
Corner Punch: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)
Sticker: Happy Trails Our Adventure Grand Adhesions (K&Company)
Self-Adhesive Lace Border: from Chui
Ribbon, Buttons: Local craft shop
White Pen: Choose Gel Ink Pen (Pilot)

The sketch of Unscripted Sketches #85 is shown below:
