I have seen so many cards using browns and have just loved them and the challenge was the boost I needed to give it a try and also include the sketch challenge as well. I used bleach to get the vanilla flowers on the brown bg and it worked perfectly (frist time I have used bleach), the wheel made a perfect wicker bg for the one panel. I had to make the top layer a little larger than the sketch so that I could fit the fleur stamp on it. It was just what it needed. As soon as I saw the sketch and wanted to do the brown card, I could picture this card in my mind. The little flower dangle is from Walmart and was brown also. They have two sizes and in multi colors - a little flower charm on a jump ring. I also used the glitter pen to highlight the flower centers. You cant see it in the scan but it adds just the finishing touch, I think.
