Mono distressed 4x4


Hello, I've been playing again, and I've ended up with this digital 4x4. I'm entering it into the following challenges:
4x4 Friday - Mail art (letter and postmark)
Moving Along with the Times - sketch plus brown pink and ribbon
Design Dollies elements challenge - Frame, image, brown, 3 flowers and a butterfly
Papertake Weekly - open theme
Simon Says - Distressed
Creative Inspirations - anything but a card
KL Stampin' and Scrappin' - 1 image, 2 papers (one as the bg and one I used to cover the frame) and at least 3 embellishments.
Oh, Alice - M.A.D. Monochromatic and distressed.
How did I manage to enter both a monochrome AND a pink and brown challenge? Well, by using mostly a shade of brown-y pink (or pink-y brown) and then using that shade to give me both the brown shade for the button and the side border and the pink shade for the ribbon. I'm not entirely sure if it really counts for both, if I've gone too far outside the challenge guidelines, just let me know :)
