Thankful for you

My Papertrey Ink package of goodies arrived yesterday and it did not take me long to get it open and make a card... or two.

Rustic Branches is such an awesome set. I stamped the wreath with Spring Moss and the wreath outline with Olive from Colorbox. The berries were stamped with Roussillon from Colorbox and then covered with a gold Atyou Spica pen. Thankful for you was stamped with Dark Chocolate.

I used Spring Moss to stamp the branch onto the Spring Moss card stock to create an awesome pattern for the first layer. Dark Chocolate was the next layer and all was mounted onto a base made from Vintage Cream.

I did a score line around each of the background layers with my scor-pal.

I made another very similar card but changed up the position of the words a bit and added a couple pieces of ribbon. Can't decide if I like the first or second one better. They both look better IRL. Honest!
ETA: I am so sorry I posted this in a hurry and forgot to tell you that the ivory paper that I stamped on is not PTI. It is from The Paper Company. Lovely textured paper but not from PTI.
