Do Over

Hello all my Crafty Friends!! Today at Hiding in my Craft Room we are having a "Do-over" Challenge. Take a card that you have made and give it a face lift!! 

For my card, I have used one of the first cards that I made when I was learning how to do Form-a-line patterns, stitching to make a pattern. I made a bunch of these that got better and I had not yet gone back to this one to "jazz it up"!!

So here is the original card

Pretty plain huh!! I love the stitching, which was done using verigated thread, then a few beads to bling it up, but the plain white card does not do it justice. So Makeover time!! 

Here is the card now

So much better, I think!! Same Butterfly but much better background!! The blue papers are from a paper pack called Garden party and the green/blue is from Kaisercraft's Fine and Sunny paper pad. 

The sentiment is a K Andrews Designs stamp set Winged Things, this is such a beautiful set. 

I'd also like to share TWO BRAND NEW Stamp Art Sets that are now available for Pre-Order with an expected ship date of May 25th!! If you want to be one of the FIRST to own these SUPER-CUTE sets, you'll definitely want to order TODAY (clicking on the previews will take you directly to the order page!!)...
