Before & After Challenge #1

Welcome to the new Before & After Challenge!

Each week, I'll have you choose card to redo. Each week there will be a different element to change. The rest of the card should stay the same or close to it. For fun, tell us why you chose the card you did! Post it back to this thread for everyone to see. If you use SCS, please use the keyword: BAC01.

This week, we are changing the colors. I chose this card because I just wasn't happy with the apricot. Maybe so saffron would have looked better? Don't know. But when I saw the color challenge on SCS yesterday I thought it might work better.

How do you think I did? Does it look better? I like the layout. Now that I've changed the colors, I'm not sure I like the extra layer and the dots around the edge! LOL!

Stamps: Simply Said, Priceless
Paper: kraft, basic black, soft sky
Ink: black, soft sky
Accessories: gingham ribbon, marker, soft sky reinker, paper piercer & mat stack
