A Touches of Texture, Timeless Textures and Happy Happenings Birthday Card

You're not seeing double.  Or are you?  LOL  I wasn't sure what color I wanted to make the background of this card, so I thought I would make both and see which one would be better.  I still can't decide?  Can you?

I used the "Touches of Texture" stamp set for the flowers and the misty looking background on the large layer.  I stamped them using Dapper Denim ink. I also used "Timeless Textures" for the ring marks showing on the right side.

The flowers were stamped using Dapper Denim and Delightful Dijon ink.  

The top card was made using Crumb Cake card stock with a Dapper Denim base.  I sponged the edges using Crumb Cake. I stamped the flower image using Crumb Cake ink and Very Vanilla card stock.  I wish I would have layered that piece in Dapper Denim card stock, it kind of got lost on the card.  
The bottom card was made the same way except I used Sahara Sand for the ink and card stock.  And again, I wished I would have stepped back from it so I could see that it needed a layer of Dapper Denim on the flower panel.  But what's done is done. 

Anyway, you pick which you like better, the Crumb Cake or the Sahara Sand.  Just leave a comment and I'll do a random drawing and send the winner the card they think is better. Don't include any personal info.  I'll do the drawing and let the winner know how to connect.

Have fun and thanks for helping me pick!  Good luck to you!

Edited 7-25-2016: I forgot to add that I will do the random drawing for the card on Saturday July 30, 2016.

Thank you for visiting today,

I like the top card but both are just gorgeous. I think it is the darker paper in the background that makes the flowers pop!
Thanks for sharing with us! So very nicely done!

I think they are both pretty, but if I have to chose one it has to be the top one. I agree with you about having a Denim piece behind the flowers. This is a fun stamp set that I haven't had the chance to play with yet. Great job on the cards!
