Today's challenge at Papertrey Ink for release day 5 is to take a card you previously made and were not happy with and redo them. My card I made for the challenge that focused on stitching was not one of my favorites. I didn't care for the dark colors and the sentiment was just lost in all the designs. So for my redo I changed the orientation, I brightened up the colors and moved my sentiment off my focal point. Here is my original card that I wasn't real happy with.
Here is my redo. I like the colors a lot better than the first.
Today is not a card, but a birdhouse. For release day 4 at Papertrey Ink the challenge is to create a birdhouse using the template provided. For my birdhouse I printed the template on white card stock, since that was the only kind I could get to go through my printer. I gave it a red roof with a cedar shake look. The leaves are from the Papertrey Ink stamps & dies called Turning A New Leaf. The flowers are from the PTI set Forget-Me-Not and the bird is from Winter Woods. This was a very fun challenge.
