Papertake Weekly - Bold or Pastel

In the spirit of getting more Christmas cards done I've made two cards using the sketch from Papertake Weekly. I've used two Lily of the Valley stamps that I treated myself to at Ally Pally. I thought it would be interesting to see how different I could make them using the same sketch and I had to say I'm pleased with both cards and would be hard pressed to say which I like best. (The pastel one might just be ahead by a whisker.) Feel free to let me know which one you like best. Have a good weekend.

First up the bold version.
Paper - Holiday Cheer by Zoe Pearn at the Sweet Shoppe
Sentiment - Woodware
Flowers - Cut on the Cricut from an SVG file I created
Next, the pastel version.
Paper - Little Joys by Zoe Pearn at the Sweet Shoppe
Sentiment - Computer generated
Flower - EK Success retro flower punches, Little Claire die
Pearl brad - The Hobby House
Swirl Die - Marianne Designs
Pearls from stash

Hi Julie, they're both beautiful but the pale one definitely has the edge for me. If cute can be elegant and classy this one most certainly is.
