Welcome to the Joyful Star Blog Hop for March

I am sure there are some people who are just like me.  I start with an idea for a card, create it, and then decide to modify it.

I wanted to share with you how some minor alterations can change the look of a card.  I used almost all the same materials.  In the first card I ensured that the entire sailboat stamp fit on the Colonial White piece. 

With the second I allowed the stamp to "spill" off the left side.  By doing that it allowed me to reduce the size of the Colonial White and then add layer of Desert Sand behind the Colonial White.

In person the cloud which was stamped with Glacier Ink shows up better than in the picture but my next modification is to heat emboss that cloud with white or clear embossing powder (and straighten that last stud!).
