Papertrey Ink - Transformation Tuesday!


Good morning, friends, and welcome to Papertrey Ink's Transformation Tuesday! I thought that is would be fun to take the original card, with lots of white and bright, and give it a little Classic Kraft makeover!
Here's my original card from July 2017 (click HERE to see the original post):

Although the orchids from the original July 2017 card are quite lovely, it seemed time for a bit of Classic Kraft love.....with the addition of the pretty watering cans, warm-hued florals and a more substantial frame for the white embossed 'Happy Mother's Day'. 

The basic design elements of the original card remain - a trio of 'framed within a frame' images, polka dot background and simple sentiment.  A few snippets of Bitty Big: Classic Kraft were added, in lieu of the embossed Aqua Mist.

The warmer shades of Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and Pure Poppy combine beautifully and help to create a project with a more natural/rustic feel. 

This little card reminds me of how much I am hoping that planting season is not too far off (and looking forward to some beautiful blooms) as it is finally beginning to look a little bit like SPRING here in western NY!

P.S. - And.... one more cleaner/simpler version of the same design (which I think I might prefer!):
