Challenge Submission

Those who follow me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/nicolestamper) know that I have decided to start participating in challenges.  I think that it will give me more to be creative with then just prepping for classes and holidays.  I am very excited!  The first challenge I am going to do is this one.

It was a long day at work yesterday and when I finally got home in the evening I was so excited to relax and stamp I went a little crazy with ideas.  I ended up making 3 cards that met the requirements of the challenge.  The requirements are to use Chocolate and Orange.  One of the cards I decided to cut and will show you it another day.  The other 2 I just couldn't decide between so I have posted both here.  Maybe she will consider both :) 

The first card is a simple card, which tend to be my favorite.  I used Pumpkin Pie as the base of the 4x4 card.  The flower is Fleurettes II and a Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button.  The saying is a rub-on.

Card Stock - Pumpkin Pie
Accessories -5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Greatest Moments Rub-ons (retired), Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button, Fleurettes II

The Second card has some detail that the picture does not do justice.  I used textured Chocolate Chip Cardstock for the card base.  Around the entire edge of the card I paper pierced a border.  In the center I used punches and accessories to give the card dimension.  For the saying, I again used Rub-Ons.
