Things I did the same as Sarah were to use the same layout, paper piercing, striped ribbon, and a gardening theme.
The first thing I changed was that I used a rectangular card instead of a square one. (I don't 'do' square cards unless I have a specific reason to make one and know I will be hand-delivering it.) I used different colors, and I picked them by coordinating them with the ribbon. I used different stamp sets, and I also colored a few of the items in the image to pull in the colors of the ribbon.
I used blender pens and ink pads to do the coloring.
I am particularly pleased with the way my ribbon's knot turned out. I did it in one try, which must be a first for me.
