PPA56 & Just Add Ink #31

One of my favourite blog challenges, Pals Paper Arts, has undergone a "Divine Redesign" so I wanted to try it out and give it a go. The idea is to have a clean & simple "day" card and glitz it up for an "evening"card. My style is a little more to the glitz side so I actually had to do this in reverse. I started out with my glitzed up card and totally simplified it after I was done but I will show you them in the other order. Their photo was truly inspiring and went with Just Add Ink's colour challenge this week so I paired them up together on my card.

Here is my simple card. A few clean layers with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral. I added a little Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon for accent.

Now here is my "evening" card all glitzed up. All my layers are doubled up including my ribbon. I added some sparkle with Rhinestones on the embossed cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds on the rose.

Pretty colors and love the glitz!

What a great idea! Simply glitz up the same design and end up with two quick cards but both different! Love the glitzed one!

Tracey Parrott

A beauty in it's simplicity! Very special! Love how you changed it up!
