Card Makeover

Every so often I do makeovers on cards that I feel need a little something extra so here's a before & after: A quick card of Penny Black image painted with H2Os and mounted on a designer PaperMania card: Cute but lacking:
and, after, where I have added other papers, ribbon (pushed through between the existing foam squares), stamped sentiment and gems:Hope you think it's an improvement :)


  1. What an adorable card!!!! I do love the difference between the two cards. You are right it definitely need a little bling!!

  2. Well I liked the original, it was cute, but the revamped version does look more 'polished', so your work hasn't been in vain!

  3. Cute card Karen and love all those finishing touches. I wish I was as good as you . . . if I don't like a card, I just forget it exists rather than modify it ! ! !

    How are you now?


  4. Both are very cute! But I like the where you added the green strip, the saying, and ribbon! :O)

  5. well the image is great on them both! the second one has more interest and the ribbon adds a little sparkle. hugs, annie x
