Kickin' Swap

I am posting my Friday "kick up" card a little early because I have got a very full schedule tomorrow and don't know if I'll get a chance to post anything. I received this card in an H20 swap I did with one of my Yahoo groups. It was made by my friend Trish Cathey. I saved it because I loved how this image looked painted with the H20 paints and I liked her layout. I didn't choose to kick it up because it's a bad card. I think it's a really nice card! I just thought it would be fun to try and kick up a card I all ready like a lot.

Trish used Lovely Lilac and Glorious Green for this card. I wanted to try and soften it a little so I added some softer versions of the colors she used (Gable Green and Orchid) and of course I added another layer to the card.

This is the finished card. I moved the sentiment over a little to add some interest and changed the ribbon color. A couple of eyelets an viola! Same basic card a little kicked up! All stamps are Stampin' Up.
I'm gearing up for another busy weekend with the marching band! I hope you all have a great weekend doing whatever makes you happy!
