Do Over Day and Liebster Award

Sometimes, when I've finished a card, I don't necessarily feel like I've finished exploring the idea behind the card. Today's cards are do-overs of this card (all inspired by the Cameo-cut card on that post). 

First I tried the same colours from this week's Colour Q. I liked the how the roundness of the 'a' in the Papertrey  sentiment echoed the rings.

Then I decided to try another colour combination and came up with this, using the same layout:

I used last week's  Play Date Cafe challenge colours, not realizing that I was too late to play!

For this card, I used the 'o' from MFT's Monogram alphabet as my ring and a Papertrey Die to cut out the space for the Savvy sentiment. I interpreted the colours as Midnight Muse, Old Olive, London Fog and Razzleberry.

On another note, thanks to Erin of createrin  for nominating MASKerade to be a Liebster blog.

(they've changed the logo since I was last nominated! lol!)

Amazing cards Ardyth. So striking. I just love how you punched out the sentiment on the second one.

Loving the circles - great use of an O. Also really like the cut out on the 2nd card. Jenny

I liked your original card and this made-over Xmas card is equally joyous! :)

Congrats on the Liebster Award! A very, VERY well deserved honor. I am sure I can speak for everyone when I say that your cards are always amazing. I am inspired on every visit.

These cards are so sweet! That is a whole lot of perfectly executed stampin'! Love the cut out sentiment panel.

Also, thank you so much for the blog shout-out! To say I am thrilled is an understatement :D

gorgeous cards! And thank you so, so, so much for the award! I just found out today...since I've been behind on reading blogs. thanks so much!

Hi Ardyth - Thanks SO MUCH for such an honor, I am just thrilled : ) Especially coming from a maker of so many beyond-fantastic cards, that really means a lot to me.

And speaking of beyond-fantastic, I love how you play around with a concept, and then come up with two similar, yet cool in their own right, cards. The cut out on the second one is brilliant. I never thought of using shapes other than a circle. It's the movers and shakers die right? Good to know, good to know.
