Hi Friends!  Today I am sharing a card made for the PPA 177 Sketch Challenge.  The sketch was created by the talented Nicole Watt.



While creating my card, I switched gears in the middle.  After completing this card, and posting it for the challenge, I returned to the original version and completed it.  Now, I am not sure which card I like best.

So, I am asking you, my blog readers, to please leave me a comment telling me your pick.  Shiny cards are difficult to photograph – lots of shadows.  

Silver foil rt

See what I mean about the shadows.  Guess I needed more light.  Maybe it would help if you could see the cards side-by-side.

Both cards

As you can see, the cards are very similar.  The main difference is the Silver Glimmer paper vs the embossed Silver Foil Paper.  And, if you look closely, you will see different bows on the cards.  Honestly, the card on the right is better than it looks in this picture.  The shadows are so distracting.

Have you made your wishlist from the 25 year Anniversary Stamp Sale yet?  So many wonderful stamp sets to choose from.  I know that some sets that I just couldn't wait to get are on sale now for 25% off.  One of those is A Dozen Thoughts (page 59 of the big catalog).  Obviously this is a set of sentiments.  My favorite in the set is the just because. I love the font used.  Another all-time favorite stamp set  is Gorgeous Grunge (page 109 of the catalog).  This is like the little black dress of stamps.  It is an all purpose set that can be used in so many ways.
