Re-worked Card

I usually don't redo cards because I could spend AGES tweaking by adding this, taking away that, etc. I would never get anything done! LOL!

But this card was eating away at me and I just had to make a tiny little addition and boy did it make a world of difference!

Here is the original card and you can click HERE for the original post.

............and this is the after!!!

Gotta love embossing!! :)

The picture below shows the prize on offer for this month!

Now for my DT cards to get you started!

I actually had a dream with the design for creating these cards! I got up one morning and whipped these up in a matter of minutes! That rarely happens so I guess it was just meant to be as I had such a clear vision on how these cards were going to turn out! I used a Martha Stewart Punch to create the window and the snowflakes are Martha Stewart pre-glittered stickers (no mess!) and then I ran the front through my Cuttlebug with a snowflake emossing folder. Finished them off by rounding the corners. I was very pleased how these turned out...wish I could have more crafty dreams to get my mojo flowing! LOL!
