The only difference with the second card is I used Hero Arts Unicorn White ink and WOW! Silver Pearl embossing powder. I added the die cut Hello, from Simon Says Stamp.
I finished both cards off with pearl embellishments and mounted the patterned paper to Gina K's Pure Luxury White card stock and pop dotted the words hello and friend on each card.
I'm entering this card in both Simon Monday and Simon Wednesday challenges.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I love it when you do.
