Perfectly Rustics Make it Better

Well here we are again with a brand new challenge starting over at Perfectly Rustics with a theme of Make it Better. I am sure we all have previous projects, layouts and cards that we would love to keep some of the elements but do a  "do over", well here is your chance.
I think I have already posted how much of a influence Kit and Clowder have had on my colouring skills, well you are about to see further proof. Here is my original card using the gorgeous Wee Stamps Summer Fairy.
