A Study in Sepia

A Good Friday everyone! This card is for Kellie's Magnolia Down Under Challenge #7.

First thing though, *Blog Candy Alert*
Kellie's got her own blogsite and she's celebrating her 15000 hits. Wow!Click here to go to her blog. Better hurry though, it's closing real soon. Check it out!

The theme for this challenge is from Debbie, and it's: Sepia.
This card certainly turned out quite different from what I saw in my head. I didn't mean to make Tilda stand out so much. I wanted to make the Tilda image blend into the background, like in an old photograph. But I simply don't have the right-colour markers--nothing to match the colours from the designer papers. This was the closest shade of brown I could find.
So this will have to do, hee hee.


I have the least number of brown-tone markers in my collection. Must buy more!!!

Almost the weekend. Yippee!! Won't have much time for cards though. Annual Sun Run. Volunteering with my sister. It's raining now--hope the sun will come out for those runners. Have a wonderful weekend!


Stamp: Magnolia #236 Farmer Tilda
DP: Magenta Daisies, Hot Off the Press Mixing Masculine papers
