Walk in the Park With Great Friend

That title sounds like something I'd love to do on such a sunny morning! Darn!...I was actually referring to the new products from the Occasions mini that I used to create these cards. I made this first card for a good friends birthday, and totally like me - it was last minute and I only had time to make one and get it in the mail.I loved the way it turned out and wanted to re-create it so I made this card loosly based on this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. (I kind of cheated...I didn't turn the middle section at an angle, and I eliminated a layer so as not to cover up the pretty paper) I thought this was a good example on how you can change up the look of your project while using the same exact same supplies.
The most obvious difference between these cards is that my second card started with a 5 -1/4" square base vs the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 base of the first card. I also changed the placement of the corduroy button and added Iridescent Ice embossing powder to the butterfly. When I was "done" I felt it still needed something so I added the flat backed pearls from the Pretties Kit.

I'm loving these new stamp sets and the soothing colors and patterns of this new DP.
