Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's blog hop time again at Papertrey Ink and this was a fun one! We were asked to choose one of our favorite cards from 2011 and remake it in some way. So to start, take a look at one of my favorites from last year, created during Papertrey's summer stamping retreat:


I like this card because it came together quickly and as I imagined in my head. Plus, this card reminds me of all the fun we had at the retreat!

I used the same layout for the remake but this one is just a little bit brighter:


I used the Funky Town paper pack and the Banner Builders stamp set for my main components along with the number dies and a variety of birthday themed sentiments. I think this card could easily become my favorite of 2012~

Thanks for stopping by! If you enjoy photography, I hope you'll take a moment to check out Photo Throwdown and play along with our bi-weekly challenge. Have fun hopping!

Wow-- that new card is so bright and fun. It's amazing that the cards have basically the same layout, but seem totally different because of the color choices.

I love both cards. The second has such a celebratory feel about it.

Kay said...

Hee, I actually remember the first card (just thought the bird was perfect), but the second card is just so happy and cheerful, you can't help but love it! Wonderful!
