On the first card I tried using two different papers to make it look like the floor and wall behind the girl. I really like the way this one worked out.
This second card I started with the flower and trying to add dimention with the shading and shadows. I was really excited when it was done. I wanted to keep the flower the focus so I just added a frame around the front of the card and coloured the sentiment to match the flower. I almost dont want to give it away hehe.
