Silver Trays - Times Two!

OK, I admit it.  Add altering silver trays to my list of addiction.  I picked these two trays up at a thrift store last weekend.  I made them for part of my DILs' presents for Christmas.  I think these are just silverplated trays and they didn't have the "vintage" look I was going for.  I tried rubbing some black patina around the edges - the patina was left over from my stained glass days - and it gave me the older look I was going for. 
Used more gorgeous Graphic 45 and Bo Bunny paper (I have a hard time covering up this paper - it is just too cute), TH's rosettes, prima flowers and leaves, nestabilities dies, and stuff from my stash pile.   The reindeer are from JOTS.
