TIC Day #3 - Tuesday's Inspirational Challenge - "Extreme Make-Over" Sample

Happy 4th of July Everyone! Jus' posting this card sample for this weeks TIC. So far the samples I've created for this challenge were "adding" elements. This time, I decided to "remove" elements of the card.

After completing the card to the right, I felt it didn't achieve the "feel" that I was going for. I wanted something a little more elegant looking. The paper clips sort of took away the elegance of what this card could have been. Scroll down to the "after" picture to see what I did to make-over this card.



This is the "made-over" card.

I decided to remove the paper clips, change the color of the rhinestones and add leaves to the flowers. I think the simplicity of the card now gives the card an elegant look.





Card Details:

Stamps: Doodle This, Word on Word, Inkadinkado (floral background)
Ink: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Watercolor Crayons
Paper: Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Darice rhinestones
