Stampin' Up! - What I Love

Hello, I was challenged by a crafty friend recently to use some of the Stampin' Up! ink colours that I had either never or rarely used.  I saw, to my amazement that I actually had one ink pad that was still completely unused - Perfect Plum! I also realised that I had never used the cardstock in this particular colour either.

As we are now in the final few days of Sale-A-Bration I decided to use one of the sets I had earned for FREE - What I Love.  I certainly love the three step stamps in this particular set - I love the effects you can achieve so easily!!

I used a 'stamping off' technique to achieve different shades of Perfect Plum and one of the flower stamps to create my background.  I added some splatters from my almost most favourite stamp set - Timeless Textures in both Perfect Plum and Pool Party for a bit of contrast.

I used the same idea to add interest to the insert of my cards:

Here is the finished card - what do you think?  I added some of the brilliant metallic glitter tape, is it too much?

I decided to make another version of this card; this time without the metallic glitter tape:

It is basically the same card but I did stamp a slightly larger background to balance things out a little bit.  

Some of you will perhaps know that I am a Libran and can be rather indecisive at times!  Could you help me decide which version is best by leaving a comment below please?  

Here are both cards with their matching envelopes so that you can compare them side by side:
