Re-purposing a carrd

I made a card in May last year using acrylic paint with my gelli plate - you can see it here. I originally used some mint green card to start with. I didn't have any purple or pink acrylic paint, but mixed reds, blue and white in different shades. I used sequin waste as a stencil. The ric rac and rib bons are Papermania.The Tim Holtz stampers anonymous stamp was inked with memento grape jelly. The sentiment was originally white so I used a couple of copics to colour to match..

This card remained in a box unused and I wasn't sure that I would send it to anyone or be able to sell it for charity, so I decided to give it a new lease of life and re-purpose it. This is the new version. I cut some of the original card, mounting it on to a pearlescent card blank, adding some more ribbon, a ribbon flower and the sentiment panel. I like this version much better than the original.

So here is the new card which is for my friend, Diane:
