PTI Princess Challenge no.9--redo an older card


Hello all! I'm here today hosting my first ever PTI Princess challenge! Although I've been in the group for more than two years, I've never hosted a challenge before so I'm excited!

OK, the challenge is to REDO one of your cards from at LEAST 1 year ago. You can use the same LO, the same colors, the same stamps, or all three, but you must remake one of your older cards. And you have to post BOTH of them! (the old one and the new)




Here is my new card. I do admit to loving Terracotta Tile! *smile*  I used my new wave border punch, an image from Masculine Motifs, an old piece of Basic Grey PP and some twine & buttons.



I inked up the tops of the waves so they would stand out a bit. I also stamped off the sailboat once and used half for the sail.


Here is the card I re-did. You can see I used the same basic LO and a few of the same elements, but if they weren't side-by-side you wouldn't know one was inspired by the other. I originally posted this card on February 20, 2008. The original post is here.


So I can't wait to see what the rest of the group does!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a fun challenge Dana! I love both cards! The use of TT on the first is so perfect for that card! I have it but never use it bc of my fear of orange! LOL! You do great things with it!! :)

Ok here are my thoughts.....I LOVE the stitching and the wave punch (I have this one and have never used it!). Your layout is fantastic and you're right....I wouldn't have guessed one was inspired by the other!!! Great challenge!
