The Same, but Different

I'm back from camping! We had a lovely time. I have to say that camping really isn't my thing...too much dirt and too little sleep, but the kids love it and it's so good for us all as a family that I tolerate it (and then come home to a shower that's mine, and a renewed appreciation for my lovely clean sheets!)
It's been a while since I blogged anything with Bodacious Bouquet. I made these a while ago for two very special people. I started off making 2 identical cards, but then I was agonising over choice of background colours, so I made them each slightly different. I know which one I prefer! .....I'll tell you later ;-)
Bodacious #1:
Bodacious #2:
The large flowers have been made really sparkly with Heat-and-Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and those are faux brads as the flower centres, with some Crystal Effects to make them shiny. I've wrapped the ribbon around the Rose Red piece and then used a brad to attach an extra little piece of ribbon as an accent. Some Paper Piercing finishes off the "empty" corner.
So, which one gets your vote?
Colours: Rose Red, Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White

  1. Both of these are really lovely Marelle, but I probably prefer the second one.

    Oh man, you are a great mother to put up with camping for the sake of your kids. LOL.

  2. great cards Marelle! I prefer the first one, and not just because it is more purple... I think it's the orange strip on the second one that throws me off it

    So it is split right now! I have to say no 2 gets me, its the extra dimension that I like. They are both gorgeous though! Glad to hear you survived the camping! LOL

  4. I like them both too but if I had to choose one it would be the first one. Like Carol the orange strip is throwing me a little.

  5. Love them both Marelle... just lovely. But have to say my preference is with the first one too. I just seem to have a thing for simpler cards. Which one do YOU like?

  7. These look familiar! I like the first one... and I should know because it's sitting on MY desk right now! How honored I am to receive beautiful cards from you, Marelle!
