[DYSU] Challenge #40 - Brown

This week at work has been super busy. I've been pulling the midnight oil and reminds me a little bit of the good old college days. I use to be in the computer cluster up until 3am or 4am, trying to finish some programming assignment. The only difference is that I was so much younger back then and was not phased by the many long night in a row and the little sleep. Forget the coffee, I was doing it with just sheer, stubborn will. Now I am just looking forward to the weekend and barely hanging on. What is your secret weapon to stay up?

So this week at DYSU, we have a fun challenge for you: Brown. I love the color Brown and the inspiration picture is just to die for!

This week I decided to push my comfort zone with this cute Copic Marker Scrapbooking digi. I don't usually do Shabby very well, but here is a go at it.

Tea & Cookies
Stamps: (Shabby Tea n Cookies Beary Wishes) Copic Marker Scrapbooking; (Flourishes - Scallops & Dots) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - Cream) Recollection; (Porcelain) Basic Grey; (Papertrey Packaging pattern paper) Recycled
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo) Ranger
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Life's Journey Ephemera Die Cut Cardstock) K&Company; (1/8" Ribbon - Pink) Spool 'o Ribbon; (Border Punch - Scalloped Sentiment) Fiskars; (Point 88) Stabilo

I managed to recycle the wrapper of the Papertrey Ink stamps packaging ;) I thought it had a nice brown border trim and added some brown faux stitching.

FABULOUS card, Ren-Yi! LOVE the colours, that DP, the LO, and that beautiful image! LOL, I know what you mean about getting older....when I was younger, I on occasion would go to work on 3 hours sleep and it barely phased me! Now, if I only get 6 or 7 hours sleep, I'm dying, lol...
