This is the original base - horrible!
Firstly, I took a piece of scrap card - SU's Pink Pirouette - which I had originally folded to make a card blank. I cut off the back end and used that as my new base front. I found in the stash, stickers and rub-ons, some old flourishes which were a bit the worst for wear.
I added three small flowers from the flower drawers, and inked around the plastic ones with some black ink. I rubbed on five of the flourishes, and then arranged the bits around them.
I cut out and inked around the edge of the sentiment - another plastic piece - and smooched ink around the edges of the pink card.
It just looked so much better - and I used up old stash, newer stash and scraps! The whole thing is on a commercial card blank.
I will enter this is the following challenges:
