Wallpaper Art Thank You

When you get the stamp set from Altenew they have a few samples of how to use them.  Some are the exact size of a card front.  I decided to add an additional flower over the top of the sample, which I colored with Copic Markers.  Unfortunately, when creating another card this card fell over on to some open red Copic Markers and left marks all over the card front.  I decided to stamp an almost exact duplicate of the card.  Coloring of the leaves was better on the Neena Classic Crest.
