Crafty Calendar Challenge - Browns and Creams

At last i am back with a card. Its been well nearly 2 weeks since i was last here. Its been a real busy and tiring week. I am still struggling with this illness and its getting tougher and tougher to deal with as time goes on...things are getting worse, not better. Looks like i have to have another Bone Marrow Biopsy to see if things have changed any. I can hardly keep my eyes open when i sit down, never known exhaustion like this!

Anyway my card today is for the new challenge over at Crafty Calendar. 
This month we are having a colour challenge...Browns and Creams and also the optional extra of using/making a tag.

I decided to give my card and image a Sepia look. I have seen it lots over blogland so wanted to give it a go.
I used very few promarkers to keep layering for a deeper colour.  The colours i used were Satin, Pastel beige, caramel and just a touch of cocoa.  I really enjoy just sitting colouring, so relaxing!
