So Nice I Made it Twice!

Good evening. What a glorious day it has been today - wall to wall sunshine all day and warm with it too :-)
 and I have been busy making cards for my MiL's coffee morning on Friday - I did make a load and delivered them last month but they have all been sold already before the event so I needed to get busy making more :-)

I really enjoyed the way this card turned out -

so I made another the same but changed the colour - not sure which I prefer - what do you think?

For the first one I stamped the PB image 'Letters and Flowers' with Vintage Photo distress ink and distressed the edges with the same ink. I also used some Bo Bunny DP and some co-ordinating seam binding. A Craftwork cards sentiment and a few matching adhesive gems to finish.
 For the second one I stamped the same PB image with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and inked the edges as before.  The DP is also Bo Bunny. This time I used some gorgeous grosgrain ribbon and adhesive pearls.

So which do you prefer?

Challenges I would like to enter:
Penny Black Saturday - Monochromatic
Celebrate the Occasion - Any Occasion - Must Use Ribbon 
Stamps and Fun = Creativity - Anything Goes
Woodware USA - Fall/Autumn
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Just Some Lines - Autumn/Fall Colours

Thanks for popping by.
Before I go I would like to share a photo of Pickle-Lily Cat and her new favourite place:

This was a birthday present from Aaron to Jack - he made it from a cardboard box - they are both obssessed with Lego and the new Alien Conquest range - I guess there are worse things to be obsessed with lol!!!

Have a fabulous eveing.

ooooh, hard choice... but I think I'd pick the red card.
Great cat-spot, amazing she lets the lego be, my furry friend would tear that place to pieces in a heartbeat.
