Take Two Tuesday!

Welcome to Take Two Tuesday where I take an old sample and recreate it using current products!  I love doing this--essentially I am just casing myself, lol.  But it sounds better to call it Take Two Tuesday!  Don't you agree?

I try to do these without much thought of what sample I pick from the pile and what set I use.  So when I randomly picked today's sample I was a bit bummed as I have not crafted in a bit and I really didn't even like the sample I picked to case!  But what the heck--I gave it a go anyway.  I seriously need to up my game with my designer paper.  I stopped ordering it for a while as I could not use it fast enough before it retired, but now I am down to only one current paper pack!  So you notice I have made all my cards using the same designer paper lately.  Good think I love the paper!

Here is the old and new card together......

It is not one of my favorites...but it sure felt good to craft so I am not complaining in any way!  It is too good to be back at it. 

Here is the new card alone......

This was the first time I pulled out the dies that match the Colorful Seasons set--they are pretty awesome!  And there are a lot of dies in the set.  The stamped leaf in the background is from the Colorful Seasons set along with the sentiment.  Mint Macron and Rich Razzleberry seemed like a strange combo at first but it has grown on me a bit.  I cut the veins of the leaf with the polka dot paper to try to pull it all together???  Not positive it worked but as I said before--I am ok with it.  

Here are the supplies used on my card.

Thanks for stopping by--I should be back to posting at least 3-4 times a week and my new order should be here any day! YIPPEE! Mary Jo
