PTI Blog Hop... Casing Myself

Hi there,

When I saw this month's PTI blog hop theme, I really wanted to play along so I found a little window of time today after work to put something together. The challenge was to take your favourite card from last year and case yourself - what fun! Here's what I came up with:

And here's the card from last year that I cased:

As you can see, I kept the layout, the doily, the style of ribbon, lace, button etc, but changed the colour scheme, flower stamp and sentiment used. I used Papertrey's Delightful Dahlias set along with Mat Stack 2 and Tea for Two for the sentiment. The flowers were stamped on coloured card then shaded slightly with a light grey copic marker. I must admit, I prefer the 2011 version, but probably because I like rich, bold colours more than pastels!

Thanks for stopping by!
