I'm using the layout of her card as a basis for mine: an off-centre panel that is the full height of the card base, a ribbon that goes under the panel, a large bow, the interest in the top right corner with some elements raised and no sentiment. The lovely Beautiful You set was the last out of my Occasions pre-order box so it's actually available from today! It's also been a while since I've had out the new In Colours from the current catalogue.
The large cluster of raised elements in Jess's card has been reduced to a water-coloured image with a single raised up paper-pieced umbrella. The gold dots on the original kraft panel have transformed into embossed dots of rain with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
I've enjoyed playing with the new (stamp set) and the 'old' (the In Colours). Thanks for a great challenge inspiration GDP.
Update: So very delighted to be a winner at Global Design Project!
