Here are a couple of cards that are the same… but a little different, too.


The first card uses brighter greens on the leaves, some yellows on the blooms and a small accent of black grosgrain ribbon.


A white gel pen was used to accent the flower centers and the leaves.


The second card has darker leaves, a little grunge, a little distressing and two patterns of designer paper.


As with Card 1, a white gel pen was used on the leaves and flowers.  However on Card 2 a glitter pen was added to the flower centers.
