Rustic Wreath - Two Ways

Here's 2 cards using Papertrey Ink's Rustic Wreath
Even though similar supplies were used, one has 
a 'country' theme and the other is clean and simple!!

Rustic Wreath #1
 Card Front: Stamper's Select White.  Card Base: Kraft

* The wreath image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then coloured with copic markers. 
* The main sentiment was stamped with Pure Poppy ink and Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 
* Background Basics: Postmarks was stamped with Fine Linen over the entire card front; Kraft ink was used to stamp a variety of images from Postmarks and 2010 Holiday Tags around the wreath; 
* Sentiments (Rustic Wreath,  Tag-Its #9, Framed Out #8) were stamped with Kraft ink inside the center of the wreath.  
* A strip of Pure Poppy gingham patterned paper and Kraft Twill Tape was added to the bottom of the card front; a Tiny Tag was attached to the bow. 
(tag: SU punch; sentiment: Tiny Tags: Papertrey Ink)

Rustic Wreath  #2

These are both fabulous, Karen! I love the background stamping with the postage stamp on the first one!
And on the second one, I love how you added the texture to the background, but not in the centre of the wreath! Very lovely!
