So, Papertrey Ink has started a new challenge (well it was a first challenge not sure if it will be happening all of the time). It was about transforming an old card into something new. Here is my entry. I have cards from a long time ago, it has me thinking that I need to send the beauties out! That is my personal challenge this year.
I found this one and immediately knew that I wanted to bust out the guidelines two stamp set. I really enjoyed that one and it hasn't seen the light of day for ages.color throwdown color challenge found here and the Global Design project sketch challenge found here. I am also entering this cutie in the Simon Says Stamp make your own background challenge. So, I used the same stamp set and the same mat stack die elements. I made it a large card and rotated the and updated my embellishments from buttons to gold enamel and string.
This was a lot of fun to put together this morning. I'm not 100% sure about the colors (it certainly stretched me). I think the gold touches helped tie everything in and make it shine.
It's a good life!
