Orchard Harvest Thank you cards

The challenge this month at the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew gallery is to make a card, and then make a stepped up version.  These are the projects I made for the DSP color focus challenge, using the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper.  I love the leaves in this paper, vibrant and fun!  In the basic card I kept it clean and simple, with just a bit of ribbon and a button to embellish the card.  In the stepped up verison I sponged the Very Vanilla card stock for a bit more depth, turned my ribbon into a bow, and added another bow in twine on the botton.  I also added a second layer to the framing around my main image.  I cut some Cajun Craze with the Fishing Touches Edgelit Die. 

I love the wood-like look to the Naturals Designer Buttons and the ruffle on the ribbon.

A bit of sponging adds depth.

Thanks for stopping by!
