Card Creations - Damask and Brocade Challenge

Here's the challenge issued over at Moxie Fab:
Create a paper crafted project (card, gift bag, tag, layout, home decor item, mini-book cover, etc.) that incorporates damask or brocade in an innovative way.

Well, I do adore damask and my Papertrey set hasn't seen much use lately so I decided to give it a workout.

I used my Pretty Peonies die to make a mask and stamped the damask all over the card with Vintage Cream from PTI.
Then I stamped the frame in silver lilac ink and the sentiment with steel blue.  A simple one layer card, easy for mailing.

I decided to make another one using the tag sale die:
I cut the tag sale die cut in spring moss card stock and stamped a Think Big sentiment in black before stamping a large damask in Versamark.  A quick clear layer of embossing powder to add a little more definition and the centre was done.
I stamped the background all over in pear ink but it is really hard to see ... The centre one is stamped in tuscan olive. a A green button with some button twine and the card was done!  I popped the die cut up on foam dots for some dimension.
I decided the card deserved a decorated envelope so I stamped the damask background with pear ink right in the centre.
