A CAS Re-Do Challenge

Sorry I've been AOL for a couple of days. I started a new Beth Moore Bible study (Daniel), we're gearing up for hosting our marriage group, I'm taking a beading class, the weeds are verrry happy with all the rain they've been getting and life in general has suddenly gotten very busy!
Apologies for this awful photo! I'm definitely asking Santa for a new camera this year. My old Sony digital takes about one good shot and then the color goes wonky. This is more vibrant although muted IRL.

The challenge on SCS CAS (Clean and Simple) this week was to take an "old" card and re-do it.

I made these cards last fall but I never really liked the one on the left...just too busy. It didn't get sent for that reason, I guess. I decided to super simplify it using the same main image but changing the size of the card and leaving off the "clutter in the background.
I stamped the image in Tea Leaves Versamark Chalk ink then again, lightly in
PTI's Dark Chocolate. I ran my distressing tool around the chocolate layer.
BTW, if you purchased PTI inkpads and have been having trouble stamping your images especially with the Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush and Spring Moss colors, you can exchange the pads and reinkers for credit. PTI has identified a problem. There is a link here that explains the procedure you need to follow. They have the best customer service. So happy they've addressed this issue.
I forgot to post this card!! It uses the same layout just a different image and color palette.

Stamps: Papertrey First Fruits, Floral Fusion
Paper: PTI Kraft, Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream
Ink: Versamark Chalk Tea Leaves, PTI Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate
Accessories: PTI twine, buttons
Pin It!

Such elegant cards! So pretty! I laughed when I saw your comment about the apple stamp at Mike's! Maybe it will still be there on your next visit! :)

Charlene, both of your cards are wonderful!!! You do CAS so well!!! I hear you about the weeds,I am way behind pulling them ;D. So you are taking a beading class? Well, I can't wait to see what you'll be creating in that area ;D. This biblestudy sounds like it is very interesting, such a deep book. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
