Papertrey Ink - Transformation Tuesday


Good morning, friends, and welcome to Papertrey Ink's Transformation Tuesday! I thought that is would be fun to take this CAS card, one from my holiday stash, and give it a little makeover!
Here's my original card (click HERE to see the original post):

Yes..... it was time to switch out the winter-y shades of green/red/brown (and holiday sentiment) for something more SPRING like! I've incorporated similar design elements (Bold Borders die, Mix & Mat-type center panel, petite/wrapped bouquet, simple greeting), but have created this new, transformed card with a happy mix of yellows, greens, pinks and corals. A harbinger of spring, I hope, because it's still snowing here in my neck of the woods!!

My older creation included a Classic Kraft background (my 'neutral') with a Prairie Grass center panel. The new springtime version has reversed this, as the Bold Borders: Prism provides a colorful backdrop to the crisp white panel, petite flowery bouquet and simple sentiment.

The pretty posies from Mixed Bouquet (2018 Anniversary set) are stamped in shades of Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise and Green Parakeet. The assembled mini bouquet is wrapped/tied with a snippet of white crochet thread and accented with a few mini pearls.

I find the yellow tones so hard to photograph..... and this is so much softer IRL. But that did not stop me from trying another color combination! Here is an identical layout in soft pinks (Pale Peony/Hibiscus Burst) to add to my birthday collection. Which do you prefer??
