Makeover Reveal: Smiling Pumpkins

Earlier this week, I posted a card that I wasn't quite happy with and asked for your comments and suggestions to finish it off. Last night, I gave my card a makeover. I like it better now, but still can't decide which one I like best. Leave me a comment and vote for your favorite makeover.

Card A: I added a black layer behind the top note and added two black brads above the DSP. This card is the same as the original size: 3-1/2" x 5". I felt like the black brads looked like beady little eyes, so I tried something else...



Card B: I cut the Top Note in half the long way and layered it with Basic Black. Instead of brads, I added paper buttons (Buttons #5 Sizzlit). The card size is slightly different -- 3-1/2" x 5".

Card C: [The card looks grey, but it's still Perfect Plum.] This is the same as Card B, but I added a bow on the strip of ribbon. I can't decide if it makes the card too busy.

Let me know what you think! Leave a comment and vote for your favorite makeover: A, B, or C.

Supplies: Twick of Tweet, Whisper White cardstock, Jet Black Staz-On ink, Old Olive marker & cardstock, Pumpkin Pie marker & cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, Top Note Die for the Big Shot, 1/4" Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Cast-a-Spell DSP, Buttons #5 Sizzlit

I like C the best - the ribbon just adds flavor, not busyness.

Karen said...

I like Card A best, I love the black behind it and the brads.

Amy said...

I like version A the best. I think the black frame around the image helps ground it and provides balance to the black in the hat and the black ribbon.

They are all really super cute though, even the original!

I like Card B. Though I have to admit I'd probably put the bow on it. But I like it without.

Rene said...

I like B the best, though C is a close second. I think I'd like C best if the added ribbon was just a knot and not a bow ... Patricia

Jessica said...

C, TOTALLY

Tara Kieninger said...

A all the way! It's more your style anyway - simple but fabulous.

Definitely Card A!

Michelle Ryan said...

I like B, but I don't think C looks too busy.

Faye said...

Nothing like taking it up a huge notch....gotta go with C. It's so cool!

Barb said...

I like the added buttons without the bow. I might have put some linnen thread in the buttons.. but I really like them all!

Caryl P said...

I like them all do I have to pick one? If forced I'd pick C just because I like bows!

Christyne (aka Apple Blossom) said...

My fave is C too, Julie! Looks GREAT!

Libby said...

I think I like "B" the best, but they're all cute.

Shannon Murdock said...

I like A best if you tie the ribbon as you did in B and C =)

Hard to choose but I guess I'd pick B, without the bow it can be for male or female.
