PTI Posse - Before and After

Our second June PTI Posse challenge was to pick a card we had made that we weren't quite happy with and re-do it. 

 Here is the card I picked:
 I liked the stamped background, but the rest of the card didn't come together well.  Too stark and harsh, the bow is too big, and the sentiment is just kinda floating there.
So here is the after:
Much better! I kept the background but added some flourishes. Made the bow smaller and added the gray to the color combo.  I really like this card now!

Thanks for stopping by!

I think the flourishes, bow at the bottom along with the sentiment makes it more elegant,

I do love both of these but the second one is just a notch above! Gorgeous work Becky!!

I love the changes you made to the card. I loved that bow on the first card, but it looks much more balanced on the second. I like how it looks with out the double ended banner too. I am so glad you played along with my challenge. Before and After is kind of fun, isn't it?

The "after" card is stunning, Becky. I love the way you stamped the flourishes under/over the text. The grey border also grounds the card nicely.
