Recycling old designs (pt 1)

I was recently clearing up old scrapbooking stuff to make place for new things...(there's never enough place is there?).. and there were a few old cards which I had made but never gave out because I didn't like how they turned out.. (you could say I have improved  :)')

So I thought why waste the good parts, let's recycle and redo the main image element or work around it.....So here's two of them ......

Only the centre piece which was punched (Karl) is the old piece, I  added the Cottage Cutz die [CottageCutz Floral Doily (4x4]
, a Hero Arts sentiment, embossed and stamped with metallic ink for background using Slanted Tree also from Hero Arts... a layer of Frost White Tsukineko ink for a metallic shine. A bit of purple flowers peep through the doily lace die because of the recycled paper I used which had pinkish petals embedded.

The whole of the oval piece is the original, the rest is recently layered on.
I love the Hedgehog stamps, they're so cute.
