Simply Soft Do Over - OCC & DD12


Gee, I had fun creating this card for Our Creative Corner and Dynamic Duos 12.
 
Over at OCC this week, it's all about do-overs.  I loved the concept of this challenge and was all over it as soon as I read about it.  I browsed through my older photos and found this card....
On my old card I used the Simply Soft stamp set from Stampin' Up.  It's a super easy set to make fabulous cards with, so how could I go wrong???  This card was wrong for me in so many ways.  I hated the torn oval behind the main panel, I wished I would have mounted the backround DP on a peice of regular cardstock, and I wasn't happy with the ribbon.  And don't get me started on those flowers!!!  So, I was thrilled to get the chance to makeover this card!  I thought the DD12 Challenge colors would be perfect to do the makeover with.  I love the way the Poppy Parade "pops" against the black.  I had also seen a tutorial on YouTube a while ago where the gal used the layered marker technique on this set and it looked so neat, so I knew I wanted to do that too.  I colored in the flower petals with Blushing Bride first, then came back over them with Poppy Parade.  I'm so much happier with my do-over card and am glad OCC had this challenge!


Here's a list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: Simply Soft, Just Believe
Paper: Poppy Parade, Black, White, Sunny Days DP
Ink: Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery, Lucky Limeade, Stazon Black
Accessories: Framelits Labels die, Scallop Polkadot ribbon, Word Window & Modern Label punches, button, bakers twine, rhinestones
Thanks for taking a peek!
