Throwback Thursday ~ "Do Over"

Good morning! Hope you all are having a fabulous week so far! It's almost the weekend! YAY!!
Today over at My Creative Time, Emma and the design team will be doing a Throwback Thursday ~ "Do Over"! This is when we find a card we created and just redo it! Now I have to say this was a tough challenge. Not because of finding a card but just picking one!
So I didn't have to go back too far to find one and to be honest I am scared to look back when I first started crafting/blogging! Heck just looking back a year could be frightful!
So with the card I chose to do over, I thought I had too many patterns going on and made it rather busy looking! We all know I add a ton to my cards, so I thought lets keep make this card clean and simple.  I wanted to use some of the same My Creative Time products as possible but show how different it could look. I sure hope this all makes sense because I am having a hard time concentrating because I can hear my son coughing in the other room...poor thing just started this right after school! UGH! So I need to make this super short...
Chosen Do Over Card. Click here for details.

My Do Over card
I think using a bigger oval for the vines, solid soft colors and a white background changed it up a lot! What do you think??
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ SU and VersaFine
Ribbon ~ PTI
button ~ PTI

Head on over to Emma's blog and see what the DT's have done with this fun "Do Over" segment!


  1. Both are so beautiful! Love the green and blue color combination on you redo card! Fabulous job!

  2. I love them BOTH!!! But I'm really loving the color combo on the new card - just gorgeous! And the button on the ribbon is a cute added touch!

  3. Both are beautiful - but I do like the second one more. The white background really makes the flower and sentiment stand out.

  4. Geeze tough call both of your cards are so beautiful......but what's so cool about seeing the before and the after is that I/we got to see 2 different ways to create with Miss Emma's awesome this was a lot of fun.....I love what you did and how you did it....both ways. YOU so ROCK!!

  5. They are both beautiful! Your stamping is perfect and love the colors!! How fun to look back but I don't think I would want to look back to far...omg, I would hope I have gotten a little better at things, lol! Your work is always amazing and you always choose just the right colors, papers and then to top it off with the fabulous bows!
    I hope your little man gets better soon! Our family had that crud to and let me tell you,, it sure hangs on it seems! Hang in there and hope his cough is short lived!
    Have a great day my friend!

  6. To be honest Kim, I like both cards. On the original I might just change the oval in back of the hello to a tone on tone or solid. The colors on both are so pretty. Your make over does look CAS...softer and light. The vine stamping design for the sentiment oval is pretty both ways but think I like the above and below a little better. Beautiful job. I would not trash the original card!
    Hope your son is better soon and the rest stay healthy!

  7. I hope your son is feeling much better. I love how you changed a few things and made a completely diferent card. Both are beautiful

  8. Both of your cards are just beautiful my friend. I love the colors, fun patterns and gorgeous bow on the first one. Your second card has more of a soft, warm and very comforting feel to it. The blues and greens are lovely.

    Hope your little guy is feeling better soon. All the grands have been sick and seem to be passing it around -we are ready for springtime!

  9. Love the new pink one, BUT the other was pretty too!

  10. kim, both cards are beautiful! I love the new one's color combo!
