Brown Tones

Two cards that I have made I have using brown tones.

The first card is for the Clean and Simple Challenge #176 using this sketch.


I decided to make a masculine card and that is why I went for the brown tones.

I gold embossed the envelope stamp and the old french writing on to brown card, and dry embossed the d'vine swirls and diamond plate onto copper card and cut them into squares.  I mounted them onto a fawn/cream card than I had punched the scalloped edge on and mounted this onto brown card.  I then mounted it onto white card that I had distress inked with walnut stain.  I gold embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment.
