Hello everyone and welcome back!
Have you ever looked back on your older cards and thought to yourself, "What was I thinking??" "How in the world did I EVER think that was cute?" or just straight up said, "What crap!" Well, guess what? At Our Creative Corner, we are having a challenge that makes you do this very thing...critique yourself based on an old card you've designed and then do a makeover! How fun is this??? This fabulous challenge is hosted by our very own creative Lori Rider.
There are 2 details that you must follow..
1.) Show your original card and pick one or two things you like about the card and then
2.) Create a makeover based on that choice.

Here is my makeover card where I chose to keep the lattice work and expound from the original card.
Here is the original card I created
One thing I have enjoyed learning is that stamping does not always need to be symmetrical. As you can see here, I've got like items in like places. The lattice work here, I do like, but I've learned that just because I have lattice, it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be a garden theme. Lattice can be used as a textural accent instead and lend to the depth of a card, no matter what the theme is. In my makeover card, I've incorporated the framed lattice but as an accent piece of interest and not merely there to determine the theme. I've definitely learned that I enjoy building onto something and layering and experimenting with various shapes and lines.
I hope you enjoy this makeover and that it inspires you to join our challenge. Of course, you won't want to miss the other incredible makeovers from the team either...you're going to be amazed!

Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
