Shades Of Brown - Flowers

Flowers in various shades of brown:

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Brown Sugar - Shades of Brown

Catch The Bug - September BINGO

My BINGO line is embossing + handmade embellishment + sentiment

I have used an embossing folder and brown cardstock to create the background for this card.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I don't think I've ever tried to colour flowers in browns before so decided to challenge myself to do that with this image!  I have used various copic markers in brown shades.  The handmade flower has been created with pearlised paper.  I rubbed one side with one colour of Cat's Eye pigment ink and the other side with a darker brown.  I then cut this out with my Marianne's flower die and crafted it into a flower.  I added some brown pearls for a bit more interest and also some Glossy Accents to the centres of the flowers in the image.
