When you look at Jen Jockisch's page, you easily see how Kim Hughes saw a card in it. Kim gave her card a different feel appropriate for the card's purpose while still using most of the elements on Jen's layout-including the space for the photo. The difference in the card is the absence of the title and journaling. Kim filled in the space left by removing these by rotating the photo-turned-focal-point element.
