Let's Make It Again! Take Two

Have you ever completed a card, and as you are seeing it come together you have an idea for making it better? That often happens to me, but I rarely re-make it.  Sometimes I rip it apart and fix a thing or two. At other times I leave it alone and get busy with photos and posting it for a challenge.

Speaking of challenges, there is a new one at PTI called Transformation Tuesdays. To take an old card, change it up and make it new! 

So I got busy with yesterday's card. See that post HERE

I felt it was too busy. The placement of the sentiment and the flowers in the frame was awkward. 

I began by deciding to shift the frame to the landscape position. Using sponging in the soft blue for the sentiment die cut and the card base, helped simplify the focal point and add cohesiveness.

 I added shimmer to the die cut and spatters in blue as well. Lastly, I used a scalloped rectangle die cut to repeat the scalloped edges inside the small frame.

Using colored card stock on the base pulls in another layer of color. 

I'd love to know what you think of the changes. I always love hearing from you. Thanks for visiting!
