A colour combo

We have a colour challenge for you today at Crafty Cardmakers, our combo is Pink, Brown and Cream. This has made a bit of a change from all the Autumn colours and Halloween challenges around at the moment and I quite enjoyed using the limited Promarker palette to colour the digi stamp from Paper Makeup  which I won in a recent challenge.

I used pink cardstock as my base then took some cream card and used a stencil and distress inks to create a patterned backing. I mounted that and my image onto brown cardstock, rounding all the corners with a corner punch. I added some pink cord and some felt 'buttons' to embellish my card. The sentiment is from a Whimsy Stamps set and I used a rub down to create the rounded box for it.
