One Design Three Ways

I saw the basic design for these cards on Anna's Pinterest page.  Here is the original -
(This image comes from Anna's blog.  It was posted in March 2014.  It can be found here)

Now for my (newbie) interpretation.
For this card and the next, the basic elements are the same.  Gingham patterned paper (source unknown) embossed with Anna Griffin Eleanor Lace folder.  White and yellow layers are cut and embossed with Anna Griffin Francesca Lace die and folder.  White scroll die is cut with Anna Griffin one of the 8 dies included in her Lace Trimmings set.  
For the card above, the flower and leaves were cut using Anna Griffin Garden Rose dies and embossing folder.  The rose was then heat embossed using Ranger Ancient Gold embossing powder.  The sentiment is cut using one of the banner dies from Stampin' Up's Project Life collection and stamped with Stampin Up's Sweet Essentials in Smoky Slate.  Bow from CTMH white seam binding ribbon.

The only difference to this card is that the heart is cut from DCWV glitzy paper using Anna Griffin Double Hearts die and then embossed with that folder.  Sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate by Stampin' Up using Stampin' Up Good Greetings set.  The banners were cut free hand.

Finally, this is a card I made last year for Mother's Day.  I made two - one for my mother and one for my MIL.  My husband sent his mother a different card so she'll be getting this one this year.
Patterned paper is from Antique Paperie stack by Colorbok.  Scroll die is from Anna Griffin Lace Trimmings collection.  Lacey edge is cut and embossed using Anna Griffin Francesca Lace die and folder. Center strip is embossed with Anna Griffin Amelie Lace.
 Blue scroll die is Anna Griffin Flourish Scroll.  Flowered layer is stamped using Stampin' Up Apothecary Art set, die cut with Stampin' Up Labels Collection and colored using Stampin' Up markers.  Sentiment is stamped using Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Banner was cut free hand and embellished with a half pearl from CTMH.
