Seeing double

When you have identical twins celebrating their 18th birthday
what do you do with regards to their cards?
 
My son's helpful request as you may recall was...
"make something the same but different"
 
....and here is what I came up with
 
 
As you can see I opted for the same image but in different colours and will leave it to Ben to decide who gets which card!!
 
 
I added my own sentiment in Word prior to printing out the images and then chose the backing papers, enabling me to colour match the girls
(something I should try to do more often as it makes life so much easier!!)
 
 
 
Supplies:
Girl with sign by Mo Manning
Copics
Polychromo Pencils
Stella Rose Mabel Papers - My Minds Eye (Green)
Spring Chic - Me to you (Pink)
Nestabilities
Sewing Machine
Ribbon from stash
 
Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Favourite thing
Crafts & Me - No blue
Paper Shelter - 2 of anything
Pennys paper crafty - Something new
 
That's all for now
Hugs
