Lovely as a Tree - Oak

Im back stamping again... this time I used my Stampin Up stamps Lovely as a Tree, using the large oak tree for the centrepiece, this was embossed with copper, as were the oak leaves. The sentiment was computer generated and again embossed with copper, both were mounted on brown CS. The green background was stamped on the lower half with the oak leaves using Versamark watermark stamp pad. I finished it off with brown ribbon and 6 brown brads.
This card fitter the challenges for StampTV where I had to use Brown and one other colour, ABC challenge where metallic had to be used, Creative Card Crew Challenge where the card had to be embossed in some way. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge asked this week for brads or eyelets. One stop Craft Challenge was to see some cut work on my card.
Thank you for stopping by ... Jose
