Raspberry Suite Color Challenge Week 6

I was so surprised when I checked Dawn McVey's Blog tonight and saw that there was another Color Challenge posted! These colors are so fun and so I dove right in. I came up with two cards that are only slightly varied from each other.

I couldn't decide which I liked better so I did what every cardmaker who stamps at home does....I padded upstairs and asked my hubby which he liked the best. He never just placates me with an "They are both great honey", he takes time to look at each card, selects which he prefers, and then describes to me why he likes one card over the other. I love that about him!

He preferred the card above. He said that he liked that the white was the focal point of the card (it is embossed with the cuttlebug leaves folder) and that the colors were just accents. He also liked the bow.

I was still torn because I really, really liked the aqua mist background on the card below...so I posted them both. Hope you enjoy! Off to hop around and look at everyone else's entries!
Edited: I added two more photos I took outside. I think the embossing shows up better.



Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ribbon: Papertrey Ink
Stamp: Paper Makeup Stamps
Ink: Memento
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug

Hummm... they both are cute. If I had to chose I would say the second, I just love the aqua mist embossed! Oh and what a lovely DH to take the time to really get involved. Mine would say the "they are both great hunny"!! LOL!

These are both so pretty, it's hard to pick a fave. I gotta say, I love the look of white embossing. ;)

I like the aqua one better too. I think the embossing shows up better. But I'm betting they're both gorgeous in "real-life".

Simple and sleek. Love the dry embossing. Way to rock the color combo.

It's a good life!

I think I like the aqua mist one more... I like how you can see more of the embossing because of the simpler ribbon treatment. Both cards are beautiful, though!

Ohh! They are both pretty! The white truly deos "whisper" you quote though so I guess that tips the scale for me.
