If you've never tried altering a store-purchased greeting card, I encourage you to give it a try. It truly makes you look at cards in a whole new way. I did so for a blog swap sponsored by a friend of mine. We created three and received three in return. I dug out my beeswax (which is never far away in my art room!) and added just a few layers of tissue to the already Autumn-like card as well as pressed leaves and mica bits. The lady is from D.J. Pettit and the tree is chipboard. I recreated the card into "something new", the theme of Mixed Media Monday this week.
