Card Redo

Have you ever made a card and you look at it and something is not quite right?  Usually I let it go and move on, but I decided to take the same elements that I used on CARD 2 from a previous post and create a better version of that card.  I kept the medallian and made an epoxy looking center.  I also liked the color combo, the stamping gradient, and the sequence trim so I kept those elements.  I made the following changes:
  1. Changed the medallion from cardstock to patterned paper.  It was much easier to fold since the paper was thinner.  I also did not scallop the edge this time.
  2. I added a curry large scallop border and then added the sequence trim on top of the scallops.  I did not add a second strip of trim.
These were only a few changes, but it really made the card look different, and I card I liked a lot more.

Paper: Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!); Bitty Box patterned paper (PTI)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry (SU!), Versamark
Stamps: Circle-A-Thon (SD)
Extras: Extra Thick Embossing Powder (SU!); Sequins ribbon (May Arts), 1 3/4 and 1 inch circle punchs (EK Success); Scallop Die (Sizzix for SU!)

Yes, I have - and it always seems to happen after I've used permanent, double sided tape that refuses to come back up!

Great card!
