Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Cards

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress:

    Oh, Kristi,
    These are all SO adorable. I really had absolutely NO interest in this set…..until you made these lovely cards. Now, I have to re-think that mindset! So lovely and so creative. Thanks for sharing.
