A Re-Make and Take

Last week in our Fabulous Friends Challenge, we re-made a Make and Take from the SU Regionals at home....I had another make and take from that day that I stamped there, but brought home to finish as well.

This was the original design from Stampin' Up! Pretty, but to me...still needing something.
So, at home I created this one:

See the difference a few layers and some accents make? I colored in the confetti piece with my SW Markers, blending a little with my Aqua Painter (because it's confetti white not watercolor paper it doesn't "move" as well). Then I added some sponging for depth and some pretty piercing, and an additional layer. I changed up the main card by adding a Not Quite Navy main card, adding sponging, some piercing, brads, some different designer paper and ribbon and the sponged sentiment with a popped up flower. Still a simple card, but with so much more pizzazz don't you think?

Well, the germy bug has caught up with me now...hopefully it's a short one, I'm pooped! Where's a nurse when you need one! :)
