Brown roses for you

Today I made a card  inspired by picture on Mark's Finest Papers current challenge -

I used different hues of brown and a flourish too. Stamps are from Mark's Finest Papers set called Roses For You.

The ripped brown layer behind the image are paint chips from Canadian Tire - they have wonderful matching colors and sooo many shades (you'll be seeing more of them). Flower and leaves were colored with Prisma pencils and then cut out.

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:
Friends of SpeedyTV - distressing
Unscripted Sketches - sketch
Alphabet challenge - R for recycling, repurposing - paint chips
Delicious Doodles - monochrome
