Happy Day - Updated Previous Card

I went to bed last bothered by the amount of Sage Shadow on my previous card for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge. Yes, I'm a little obsessed!

Today, I got a piece of white cardstock and stamped it with the same stamp from Fresh Cuts and then I embossed it with white embossing powder. I rubbed Rose Romance (I don't have Regal Rose) on the embossed image and wiped away the excess ink. I slipped the new layer into my old card, and Voila! I like the card much better now and I didn't have to take anything apart.

The Sage Shadow is still there, but it's just a small border. Sorry for posting twice. Posted by Picasa

Isn't it crazy how this can take over your life!? You're too funny. I like the other card, but I agree with you, this one is better. I'm not sure why, I think it's that dramatic embossing and color contrast. I really like it! Can you post another picture of the little cutie pie!? I know I've said this a gazillion times, but his smile is almost magnetizing! When you have the chance! Love and lots of hugs, Jenn
