Steppin' it up a notch

Hello to ALL!!!

I was having some fun altering this first card (below) for a workshop a couple of weeks ago and realized I wasn't just "altering" the card but "steppin' it up a notch" too! Gosh, I feel like I am on Emeril Lagasse's show!!!! :-)

See if you can find the difference between the two cards....... My photography is not the best so look closely!

Both cards use basically the same supplies and tools except for a little bit of silver cord and brads added into the 2nd card.

Here are the ingredients I used....

Stamp Set - Snow Swirled

Cardstock - Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

Ink - Pacific Point, Baja Breeze

Accessories - Blender Pens, Dimensionals, Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, Silver cord, Filigree Designer and Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Silver Brads, White Gel Pen, Paper Piercer and Scallop Edge, 1/4 circle, 1/2 circle punches

It's kinda fun to step it up a little bit from one card to the next! A good challenge indeed!!!
Wishing all of you a lovely weekend!
I do hope to post again real soon!
Hugs and smiles galore,
~avril :-)

I see what you mean.{ Both cards look great, though!} I do like the added touches. Some times days later when I look at one of my cards, I see where I could have added or changed something to "step it up a notch." So lately I don't adhere my card right away. I let them sit awhile and come back to them later. For some reason then I see them in a different way and can add a touch I hadn't thought of. Love your cards!
