"Can You Spot The Difference In These Twins?"

Good Morning to my Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers.
It is the middle of the week.  Two more days to go before the weekend break.
It is Ash Wednesday.  Some of you will be participating in LENT.
It is Black History Month and the person I want you to focus on today is Bessie Coleman.  Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent and is also the first Native American woman to hold a pilot license (use Google and read more information on her).

The two cards I made today are twins (somewhat so).  I want you to spot the difference if you can. They were made with the following:
Blue Recollection cardstock for A2 (4.25 x 5.5) base
Black Recollection cardstock for mat 1/8 inch less than base
Grunge paper 1/8 inch less than mat. It was colored with distress inks (fossilized amber, scattered straw, evergreen bough and mermaid lagoon. I also used Tim Holtz’s Splatters stencil in various spots on this paper after distressing it.
Designer paper from Colorbok Delilah cut at 4  x  2.75 ( one piece was left as is while the other was distressed some more with evergreen bough distress ink and I used the same stencil to add some black circles.
A yellow piece of Recollection cardstock was cut at 3.5 x 2.25.  Both were distressed with the evergreen bough distress ink and black circles were added using the same stencil as above.
Birds from K & Company
Light blue homemade paper was used with the Spellbinders Romantic Vines for floral die cut
Die cut of greenery using Tim Holtz Alteration Holiday Greens dies
Little B punch for the black pieces on the sides
Recollection faux rhinestones
Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments die with two brads was adhere to one of the cards.

These cards can be used for any person that is going through "something" .  At the moment, I have a brother-in-law who is in the hospital.  He is a firm believer and he knows that God has his condition in HIS hand.  I just want to send him  one of these cards  to let him know that I'm a prayer warrior and we all have to Trust God and believe that everything is going to be okay.

Hope you enjoyed your view today.  Come again!

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
