GC133: Chestnut Theme Challenge - Use a Set

For this challenge I began with a master board.  I spritzed a 12" x 12" piece of kraft paper with Glimmer Mists in Coffee Shop and Candy Apple Red.  Then I stamped Stampin' Up's background stamps, French Script and Medallion and a couple other background stamps I have.  For smaller fill-ins I used Stampabilities Antique Key and 7 gypsies air mail stamps from the Conservatory set.  And a random heart in red ink for interest.  The result:
Then I cut the sheet into thirds and again to end up with eight pieces

Staying with a French/Postal/writing/letters theme and using Graphics 45 papers for background and  "Communique" elements, I combined them with more of the French Script stamped on parchment.
Three cards, so far.

Then... Lady Serendipity being the kind soul she is, when I was spritzing the grundge paper flourish (TH) with Glimmer Mist on a piece of stamped scrap...  I just had to make more of these:

Cool, simple and fast.  My kind of art!  HA!
