Frosty Winter Cupcake-Redo

Hello Friends and Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was all that you wanted it to be and more! I am loving the Wintery weather in my corner of the woods, just makes me want to stay in my studio and create all day. Today, I am sharing a 'redo' of a card I posted last Friday. You can see that card on this post HERE. While I was satisfied with the focal panel, I was not satisfied with the finished card, because I felt like something was missing. After looking at the card again, I realized what that something was...SIMPLICITY. I wanted to create a frosty card, a card that felt like snow and winter, with icicles and snowflakes. Well, all that was well and good and fine and dandy, but it was just. too. much.

Here is my redo. And I am pleased with it. Clean and Simple. Less really is more.

Ahhhh, much more pleasing to the eye, Barb. This one looks terrific! I'll bet you feel better now that you've reworked that wonderfully colored image into a super card.

Have a great day!
