Two Challenges- Three Cards (well almost) :-)
The second card utilizes the same medallion from Day of Gratitude, the new Vintage Wallpaper EF, pearls, Whisper White ribbon and the piece of Always Artichoke was already embossed with the Texture Plate (love being able to pull things from my stash) and just sponged both of the embossed pieces with Early Espresso.
The third card uses the same colors but I wanted to use the oak tree from the set. I hardly ever use the oak tree- I think it is beautiful, but I tend to stamp the large pine or the tree border. Again, I wanted to update the look of this set with new accessories- the Vintage Wallpaper EF, Scallop Trim Border Punch and Early Espresso Ribbon. I also used the Medallion Background stamp (center portion) on the label and background behind the tree. Sponged and distressed the embossing and images to complete the look.
Thanks again for visiting- I love to read your comments! You are such an encouragement to me and I thank the Lord for all of you!
