Burnt Sienna design paper

I made this card for pileiton challenge-Do something fun with your paper.So made this Burnt Sienna(no pun intended) by  literally burning paper over a gas stove!
Well actually what I did was, rubbed a halved lime over a background design stamp from Hobby Ideas and stamped it onto A4 white sheet and let it dry for a few minutes.Then I held the paper over the gas stove burner at a distance of 8 inches and let the paper burn a little.The result was this beautiful vintage looking sheet of paper.I got this idea from Jak heath's blog but it was  a long time ago and I don't remember the exact post.The background design paper is a printout of a freebie from her blog too!
I combined a few of the following challenges:
1) Practicalscrappers - Border Punches and decorative edge scissors
2)corrosivechallengesbyjanet -Lot's of flowers
3)cardpatterns -sketch
4)pileitonchallenge - do something fun with paper
