Before & After - Awash

I've finally been able to get time to do a challenge today, so I combined a few!
This card is for 3 challenges.
The sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers from yesterday - SC283.
I used an inspiration from Pals Paper Arts - you can check out the photo I was inspired by on their post.
The other challenge was from the Splitcoast Fan Club to make a minimal card and make another one and step-it-up a bit.

This is the first "minimal" card. I used Awash with Flowers and stamped the image twice to get a larger flower. I used a bit of striped kraft patterned paper, kraft ribbon and some distressing.

For the second card I added a few things...

I watercolored all the flowers (WOW what a difference that makes!!!) I added a filigree brad in the flower. I added piercing and one layer of color as a mat.
I also added some soft suede paper and texturz embossed the green.

I like the second "stepped up" card 100% better!
