A Redo of an Old Card!

Hi everyone!  Today's challenge at SU LateNightStampers is "What was I thinking"?. We were to go back to one of our first posts on our blog (or where ever you post) and re-do that card. (If you don't have a blog or gallery just pick any old card that you have done and re-do that.)

So to see the older card that I did you can go here!  I did not think it was too bad, but I thought all in all it could be brightened up.  I even stayed mostly with the original colors of the old card!  Now here is my re-do!

Now to tell you why I made the changes.  For one, I did not like where I put the sentiment on the first one.  It just seemed to be out of place to me.  So I added it below the ribbon on this one.  Also, used the same image - Upsy Daisy - but decided to double stamp it in the colors used instead of the one color.  The butterfly was OK on the first one, but again seemed to hide the image, so I changed it out a bit and added some bling to the butterfly and then added a smaller one to the top of the image.  I still used one layer as the base of the card, but added a border by using a embossing folder to give it more depth.  And lastly, the ribbon was also a little bland on the other card, so I kind of ruffled it a bit.  Oh and yes, I added some vanilla smooch shimmer mist to the card.

To be honest, the reason I added the butterfly to the bottom of this card is because the sentiment is crooked and you can still tell, but the butterfly did take away the focus on it!LOL

Here is a side view of the card!

And here is a close up of all the sparkle and butterflies!

So please let me know what you think.  Which do you like best?  The original one or the re-do!  Will not hurt my feelings so please let me know!

Colors used on this one are Rose Red, Baja Breeze, and Certainly Celery.  Used the embossing folder called Framed Tulips, Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, pearls and rose red 1/2" seam binding ribbon.

Thanks for looking!
