Old to new

In June 2015 I made this card - I never really particularly liked it, but kept it, thinking I might use it one day.

One evening, a neighbour requested a retirement card, asking if I would be able to make it quickly that evening. I just really didn't feel like making something from scratch, so I made new from old. I took off the picture, used an offcut piece of card trimmed with lace to add to the right hand side, adding the retirement sentiment and other sentiment, adding some gems and redistributing the flowers, adding the white ones. I was happy with this and liked it much more than the original card.
