On my old card I used the Simply Soft stamp set from Stampin' Up. It's a super easy set to make fabulous cards with, so how could I go wrong??? This card was wrong for me in so many ways. I hated the torn oval behind the main panel, I wished I would have mounted the backround DP on a peice of regular cardstock, and I wasn't happy with the ribbon. And don't get me started on those flowers!!! So, I was thrilled to get the chance to makeover this card! I thought the DD12 Challenge colors would be perfect to do the makeover with. I love the way the Poppy Parade "pops" against the black. I had also seen a tutorial on YouTube a while ago where the gal used the layered marker technique on this set and it looked so neat, so I knew I wanted to do that too. I colored in the flower petals with Blushing Bride first, then came back over them with Poppy Parade. I'm so much happier with my do-over card and am glad OCC had this challenge!

Paper: Poppy Parade, Black, White, Sunny Days DP
Ink: Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery, Lucky Limeade, Stazon Black
