Flourishes Christmas Challenge #6

Our challenge today at Flourishes was to use the same stamp two different ways. I love this pretty tree of theirs and stamped it in copper embossing and then pine green ink. The background papers are from The paper company for the copper one and Hobby Lobby last year for the green one. I got the ribbon trees and deer from my local srapbook store last year. Embellishments are from Michaels or Hobby Lobby.  The center step card is a template from Sandy Hulsart.  Sandy will have the template up on her blog within the next couple of days.  We saw this center step card on a blog, sorry can't remember where but couldn't find any templates or directions so Sandy is really good at figuring things out and bless her heart she sent me the directions.

Karen, these are both so very beautiful! Elegant and interesting and really works of art. They will mostly likely be proudly displayed in their recipients homes at Christmastime year after year!
