PAPERTREY INK TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY

Happy Day!

Today I'm playing along in the PAPERTREY INK - TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY (ON A WEDNESDAY) challenge which is part of their 11th Anniversary Celebration.....


The task was to take a card you’ve made in the past and transform it in some way. Love this idea...I recently made this card ......



and today, I took the same stamp set and transformed it from the past "Rustic" look into a "Vintage" looking card by changing to softer colors, and also transforming it from a CAS card to a more layered design.




My inspiration for the "Vintage" look came from this weeks THE CARD CONCEPT #86......


Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a fabulous day today!
