**edited to add Passion for Promarker challenge**Just Inspirational Challenge #3 + Sunday Sketch & Stamp #32 + The Pink Elephant #76

I have made this card for 3 challenges.

Just Inspirational Challenge #3 - theme - Vintage

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #32 - sketch by Ger

The Pink Elephant #76 - colour theme - Brown

Passion for Promarkers #61 - Distressing

This card uses Tinker & Co download papers and an image by Dezinaworld.  I coloured the edges of a 6 x 6 card with a chocolate coloured ink, edged my patterned paper with the same ink (hard to see on photo but it did make a difference).  Layered my Tinker & Co patterned paper onto a dark brown paper from a Papermania 12 x 12 coloured card pack. Coloured my image twice (coloured my image once before inking edges of card and then picked image up and got inky fingers all over it, must put baby wipes closer) stuck on some card candy coloured with my new Promarkers (must remember to enter PFP challenge) and Bobs your auntie's husband.  I didn't know if I could pull this off but it looks really good (she says modestly).

Off to do my linking before I forget, lots of running around this teatime with kids.
