Card of Many Challenges but of Only One Color

Monochromatic cards are some of the most difficult for me to do. Using shades of brown seem to be the easiest to accomplish since I can use light shades of ivory to the darkest browns. I made this card using an old PSX stamp but one of my faves. Stamped this cute bear with brown on sand card stock and colored with pencils and added touch of gold on his bow and heart with gel pen. Used a patterned paper that is the texture of this... as a mat  for the image and then layered on a darker brown mat that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. Placed this all on a base card of sand and added a strip of embossed dark brown with a button and bow. Finished with the sentiment on an oval cut out with Nesties.
