PTI Transformation Tuesday

There are only a few cards I've made over the years that truly were my own favorites ... this is one of them, made for a PTI Throwback Thursday homage to 2013:

 
Today, I Transformed it for my oldest granddaughter, Anna, who will have her premier stage performance in March.  It will be a Cinderella night for her [and me] - even though the play is Beauty and the Beast.  For my Clock Face embossed card the PTI Hands of Time will strike 12!
 
 
Keeping it soft with the lovely Bazzill Pale Rose cardstock I love so much ... instead of white, I've used PTI's Vintage Cream for the clock's hands and a few of those little Martha Stewart butterflies.  I'll keep my inside sentiment just for her... hope you don't mind.
 
Congratulations, Papertrey Ink, on your 11th anniversary ... you do know how to throw a party!!

Both cards are wonderful. I love the transformed one - the colors are so subtle and I love the positioning of the hands & butterflies.

Loved the original blockbuster and swooning over the sequel! That soft pink is wonderful. And Miss Martha's butterflies always make me smile. Sure hope you share some photos of Anna's big night!

When you start with a great design, changing colorways is an easy but impactful transformation, Michele. Both cards are gorgeous and just your style.

I love your case of yourself. The blush and cream are so delicately feminine and yet you've managed to get some great texture too. Wonderful.
