Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #206

Today I am posting a card that fits in with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  The challenge was to use baked brown sugar, pacific point and so saffron.  Many things are new to me today -  the baked brown sugar cardstock and ink, the Wetlands stamp set, the baked brown sugar twine, and adding a project to a challenge.  

Without even thinking about it, I had my idea for my card (ok, that doesn't make much sense, does it?).  I stamped off the weeds once before stamping on the so saffron.  Then I stamped the duck, full strength, on top using the baked brown sugar ink.  I love me some twine and am super excited that SU! gave us the thick twine for the in colors.    I really wanted to put a button somewhere on the card but it just didn't work.  So I tried the sentiment and was satisfied with that.  Although I like Pacific Point, I would not have paired it with the other two colors.  And there is the challenge.  So I opted to keep it more in the background.

Although this card seems a bit plain, I liked it anyway.  I will apologize for my photography.  My family can attest to the fact that I will not be the next Ansel Adams.  We have plenty of photos with everyone's head cut off or the images are blurred.  *Sigh*  So the fact that these pictures turn out in any way shape or form is pretty good for me!

I have high hopes that I will be able to link this card to the PPA Challenge.  This will be my first try to do something like that.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!
