Something Brown for starters

I found the starting point for this challenge at stamp something on Friday evening before going to bed and found myself dreaming how I could do such a card. Needless to say this is totally different to what I dreamt as its not the same stamp but I think I like this better. For my background papers , thin card really, I spritz some moonglow tawny shimmer, which is a lovely bronze and teal then printed different stamps in different brown inks on it. I used the same stamps on the other brown card, these are recycled from a filing system that was a little worse for wear . The stamped image is embossed in copper powder.

The layout is from another challenge I found at Truely scruptious and they had an extra of adding some doodling , my faux stitching on my lighter brown card and around my sentiment I think helped finish my card off.
Finally I found a birthday challenge at one stop craft challenge so I might enter this card for that too. I think I'm getting quite addicted to all these challenges.
