Three Amigos Blog Hop July

Out with the Old

In with the New
Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop for July!  This month our theme is "Blast From the Past".  For me this meant pulling out an old favorite card that I couldn't part with and updating it a bit.  Although I loved the cartoon feel of it, there were just some things I wasn't happy with.  I removed some of the parts.  I replaced paper flowers on the tree with acrylic flowers that were intended to be used on fingernails and some awesomely cute sequins from PaperSweeties.  I removed the balloon which I am not sure, but I think was hand drawn and I didn't like the dark color of it and of course, I added an owl.  I also replaced the clouds with a better version (balloon and clouds are from Lifting Spirits).  I removed the button and added a badge.  I removed the sentiment and added a bunch of new items.  I think I'm finally ready to send this one out into the world.  I had a lot of fun recreating it.  Now head over to Donna's and Susan's Blog and see what oldies but goodies they have in store for you!

I love both versions of the card! You always find a way to add "MORE" and improve on that which is already perfect!

What a great idea to update......I have a few cards that could do with that treatment too! Both cards look all the clusters of embellishments,the sparkle on the tree is so pretty.
