Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday!


Good morning, friends, and welcome to Papertrey Ink's Transformation Tuesday! I thought that is would be fun to re-do this CAS card, which was created back in June of 2016 for a CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, and give it a little Valentine's Day makeover!
Here's my original card (click HERE to see the original post):

I loved the crisp red/aqua plaid, but wanted to soften things up by using the pretty Bitty Big: Pale Peony patterned papers. The embossed polka dots, stitched tag and lace-y Delicates die create a bit of texture....... while keeping the design very crisp, clean and simple. And there's still lots and lots of lovely white space!

I've used the Wine Tag #2 die as my 'banner' element.... and the pretty 'From the Heart' die cut, which is backed with the dainty Delicates die. A petite sentiment, from Sentiment Staples: I Love You is stamped in Weathervane. The banner is then adhered with dimensional tape and a petite, soft pink enamel dot is added, as a common element/finishing touch. 

I hope that you'll try using your own cards as inspiration! Follow the basic sketch of the card, use a similar color combination or repeat a card using the same stamped images...... just mix up the colors a little bit. You are your great source of creative inspiration. AND, if you do decide to play along, one randomly selected participant will win a $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate!
