Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases

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.

This is the card from my Thursday Blog Hop.  You can see it here:

I turned this card to horizontal and changed where the sentiment is.  Isn’t it fun to get a whole new look using the same stamp set!

    Wow! Let me get my sunglasses! 🙂
    Pretty card, but I generally prefer the softer toned ones, like the green one you did for the hop. Love the inspiration of an alternative, helps me think outside my usual box. Thanks.
