Just Peachy!

Good Friday Morning!
I'm so excited to be playing along in the DD/DDA monthly challenge! This month Holly aka Toy was our hostess and she chose something really fun!
We are doing a Featured Stamper Challenge!
Who is the FS you ask? Well we are all casing ourselves....lol
This is what she told us:
Here is the catch... just like the regular featured stamper challenge, you are going to change at least three things on your card (i.e. different colors, different stamps, different embellishments), but we want to be able to see the subtle changes.
Challenge Focus: A CASE of one of your oldest cards.
Required Element: Change at least three things on your card (subtle).
Restricted Element: None! The sky is the limit on this one!!
Here is my new card and click HERE to see my OLD card on the FIRST page of my gallery!
Stamps: Unknown Flower, Small Sayings; Cardstock: Regal Rose, So Saffron, Gina K White and Georgia Peach DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, EK Success Wavy Border punch, Silver Brads, Rectangle Nesties, Regal Rose Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glossy Accents
I used the same stamps and basic layout but up updated the card a bit by:
- Using Nesties
-Curvy Edge Punch
-Silver Brads instead of Eyelets
-Wide Grosgrain Ribbon
-Glossy Accents
**********************************
Since I had the Georgia Peach DP out on my table I thought it would be fun to make another card with it. Luckily I found Cindy's MFTSC73 posted and got to work! I used the MFT set called Rain or Shine and I actually paper pieced! Remember I'm not great with paper snips...it's usually ME getting snipped...lol
Stamps: Rain or Shine; Cardstock: Regal Rose, So Saffron, GinaK White and Georgia Peach dp; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Circle Nesties, Glossy Accents, Paper piercer, Dimensionals
Today is THE day that Taylored Expressions is starting the new monthly KI kits subscriptions!
Stop by and find out all the details!

The card you changed -- what a difference it made. As we evolve in card making so do our styles.
