Which One?

I'm absolutely exhausted tonight, but it was one of those nights when the stamps were calling my name as I was thinking of going to bed. I can't say "no" to the stamps, so a new card was born! The first card is my submission for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I also used the colors from this week's SCS color challenge. As I was putting the card together, though, I wondered how different it would look if I left off the Pretty In Pink panel.
This second image is the same card minus that panel. Which one do you like best?

The card base is 5" X 5" in Chocolate Chip. I stamped a piece of Certainly in Celery with the Boho Backgrounds stamp set in Chocolate Chip. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip classic ink before adding it to my card base. The flower from the 'One Of A Kind' stamp set was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. I sponged the edges of that piece with Pretty In Pink classic ink. I also stamped the flower on Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery. I cut both of those pieces out using my paper snips (that qualifies for the "Ways To Use It 163" challenge on SCS). The Pretty In Pink piece was layered over the image on the Very Vanilla and Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to the edges. I stamped the small flower from the 'One Of A Kind' stamp set on Pretty In Pink cardstock using Chocolate Chip classic ink and punched it out using the 1/2" circle punch. That piece was used for a Build-A-Brad and added to my Certainly Celery flower. Those two pieces were added to the Pretty In Pink flower with Stampin' Dimensionals. The "You are one of a kind" image was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and then I added a Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon. The entire piece was matted on a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and then added to my card front.

Here is a close-up of the flower so you can see the dimension. This turned out to be a very elegant looking card. Let me know which one you like best! Toodles!

Both cards are gorgeous! I love the stamped background and the colors you chose. I like the one with the panel better.
Thanks for playing. Hugs and smiles
