Grace Card Variation

Hello and Happy Saturday!
Just a quick post today, about "C.A.S.E."ing.

A couple of weeks ago, I showed you a card in my post entitled "Grace C.A.S.E.". This was a card made for a challenge over on ChristianPaperCrafts.
Well, I had such fun doing it, and it was such an inspiring challenge, that I actually had two card ideas going on in my head at once!
So, after I did my "Grace" card, I made this other one I was thinking about, too:



This just goes to show you how easy it is to make different cards with the same basic layout and design. Just a few changes are really all it takes. I started out using different papers and colors.


Then, I used a floral image rather than a sentiment. I put Flower Soft on the flowers. Don't you just love this stuff?


And I changed my flower bouquet embellies to this awesome Prima butterfly.


I embossed the sentiment down in the corner, but still used the Nesties layers for under the image.

Really, it's pretty much the same card. But, in many ways it's oh so different.
Isn't C.A.S.E.ing wonderful?

Supplies used for this card:
Stamps: SU! Wonderful Watercolors
Paper: Very Vanilla textured c/s, Perfect Plum and Very Vanilla c/s; PTI white c/s; SU! DSP.
Ink: Perfect Plum craft ink; Old Olive and Pale Plum markers.
Accessories: SU! Crystal Clear EP; Lavender Flower Soft; Mauve organdy ribbon; Lace ribbon; Prima butterfly; Rhinestones; CB dotted embossing folder; Nesties label dies.
Techniques: Die cutting; Stamping with markers; embossing; distressing.
