Can’t make a decision!

Well it’s 1o’clock in the morning.  Just can’t sleep.  I went with my 3 girls and my husband to the movies and we saw G-Force, a Walt Disney movie.  Then we went the chapters to look at some books, card magazines and scrapbooking magazines.  Can you believe that the Halloween stuff is out already! I made a mistake by having a starbucks Chai latte. (which I know if I drink it past 3pm that I can’t sleep)  But I couldn’t resist!  Anyway, I am participating in a holiday mini catalogue swap and I just can’t decide which card to do.  I started playing with products from the mini.  It’s the best mini ever!!!  Help me to decide!

I just wanted to create a classy simple card for Sherida Giddings’ swap.  I used the Stampin’up! petals-a-plenty folder and four the holidays stamp set from the mini catalogue.  I also used the stamp set tree trimmings, the specialty paper bride, whisper white paper.  I dazzled it up with the pretties kit and whisper white taffetas ribbon.  My images were stamped in soft suede.

Here is a close up of my ornaments (these are only stamped in soft suede)

On this card, the ornaments look lighter because I stamped my ornament with soft suede then I added shimmer paint in champagne mist with my dauber on my stamped cardstock.  I just love the new shimmer paint in the holiday mini!

I know it is kind of hard to see.  It is much better when you look at it in person but I need to make a decision before monday.  Also my husband is very good at making compliments and adjustments about the projects I stamp but he would be very critical if I wake him up. lol

Help me out!  With the shimmer paint or without??

    I would definitely add shimmer paint to it….needs some sparkle
    I would also use a small thin paint brush and add shimmer paint to the background flowers (center) think that would look awesome too! HTH

    Oh wow, Kim, tes deux versions sont magnifiques et si élégantes!!! J’adore le look! Je n’ai pas retouché à ce jeu depuis que je suis revenue de la convention, il serait temps que je fasse quelque chose avec! Ta carte est superbe, je suis sûre que les autres filles vont être très contentes!

    Those are really beautiful – or elegant I think is the better way to describe them. The shimmer is a nice touch because it’s a subtle way to add ‘bling’ to the card. I love the way you’ve used the textured background as well. Hmm, now I wish I was doing the swap too…
