Papertrey Ink - Transformation Tuesday!

Papertrey Ink's transformation tuesday!

Good morning, friends, and welcome to this week's Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday. This week I thought it would be fun to take bold/bright/graphic project that I created waaaay back in May of 2012 and give it a softer, more feminine makeover.

Here's my original card (click HERE to see the original post):

Although I still love the original Simply Chartreuse/Pure Black combination, I thought that I'd lighten things up a bit by using a palette of Pale Peony and Smokey Shadow. Clearly, this 4.75" square card remains very CAS, with a pretty Flower Power bloom as the focal point.

Once again, I've used a coordinating combination of patterned papers.... this time from the Bitty Big: Pale Peony collection. The sweet sentiment is from Kimberly Crawford's Envelope Envy Kit.

The floral focal point is a pretty bloom from the Flower Power set and is stamped in Smokey Shadow.  I've added a bit of dimensional tape in order to highlight this little polka dotted flower. 

Thank you so much for joining me for this week's Transformation Tuesday! I hope you'll head over to the Papertrey Ink Blog to link up your own project for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate!

Love both of these cards and I've really been enjoying all of your projects. Do you happen to know what die you used for the flower on the first card? Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Mary,
Many thanks for your kind comments!
And..... ooops, forgot to add the Bloom Builders #3 die to the supply list:
This creates such a pretty, dimensional flower!

Pretty and pretty!! Love both color combos, but that apple green and black is striking!

Both cards are wonderful, but the green one really stands out!

Hi Michelle! Love them both, but partial to pink. Think it's that 'just right' bloom that stands out so perfectly. The square shape is a knockout!
