Same image, two cards

Good morning everyone, I hope that all is well in your world :o)
I know I've said it before, but this heat is laying me low. I am going out for a stroll very early in the mornings to get a bit of air and exercise before the temperature soars yet again then staying in for the rest of the day. At least I have got the Tour de France to watch! Good job I'm on holiday this week as it's awful on the checkouts when it's hot :o(
Anyway, I'm sure you didn't come on here to see me moaning. When the rest of you are moaning cuz it's not warm enough, I am loving it LOL!
Here are my cards for today, I hope you like them :o)

Made both of these just because I wanted to.
For a change, I have used Papermania 5" Kraft card blanks instead of making my own.
I stamped the Stampendous images onto what looks like kraft card but in fact it is cut from foolscap filefolders. My friend gave me a pack of 200, which makes 400 sheets so I think they will last me a little while LOL.
Stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Pearl Lustre and Stampendous detail white respectively. Sentiments are from a set by Creative Time.
