Elements of Style Best Wishes Card

Here's another card from the Girly Girl class. I think some Vanilla Smooch Spritz would have been pretty on this one too (or maybe even some darker splatters with the Color Spritzer), but we used Dazzling Details and a teeny tiny pearl on the bird instead. The stamp set is called Elements of Style.

The background on the Crumb Cake cardstock at the bottom of the card was stamped with the En Francais background stamp (using Versamark ink to create a watermark). Someone asked me what the French words meant and Trina reminded me an answer I gave her a few years ago. Translated, it means: "Your husband called and said to spend as much as you want!" (grin) I'll have to remember that line again for next time!

For the bird (close-up below), I inked the stamp in Crumb Cake and then "rolled" it on the Soft Suede ink so that the edges of the bird were the darker brown color.
Here's the first version of this card. I decided the classic combo of pink and brown would be prettier. I like the pink one better. Which do you prefer? Leave me a comment and let me know!

These are both beautiful, but I think I like the pink and brown ever so slightly more!
