Double take


So I made this card for my Sasya's Sketches DT commitment this week. 
Whaddaya think?
I liked it alright, but it seemed like something was missing. Or was too much. Or something...
So I took it apart and made this one:


But that one didn't do it for me either so I gave up! *chuckle*

It was based on this sketch which I think is really cute.

Play along with us this week at Sasya's Sketches and show me what YOU come up with!

Thanks for stopping by today, I should be back home late tonight so I will catch up on my google reader and see what everyone else has been up to!
*mwah*

That's awesome to post both card, but I've got to say that I like the white better. A lot more clean and fresh to me!

Oooo, too bad you don't totally love them - they're both fabulous. The white card is clean and beautiful, but I admire you're creative impulse to go for a black background. Love ya! You're amazing!

I like them both, Dana, but the white one is strking. I really love how you did the sketch. I would have just put strips of paper there and called it a day..lol. Love the colors, too!

I like them both as well! If you feel like it's missing something, maybe one of the 3 panels a patterned paper, or the scallopped border a patterned paper?? I think they look good how they are :)

glad to see I wasn't the only one who had a hard time with this sketch.

That is a tough sketch, but you did an awesome job with it. After seeing both of the cards, I have to say I like the second one with the touches of black. I think it makes the other colors pop more.

I love both, but the white is my fav, more vibrant to look at:)

Amy said...

Wow, I think you did a great job with both of these cards! I like the black one as the IP shows up so well. Do you like this IP? I've heard mixed reviews...It's currently in my cart but I am still undecided.

I love them both. I like the black one because it makes the colors stand out and I like the white one because it's bright and fresh. Excellent work as usual!

I like them both, but the white one shows off the pine boughs better. Great cards, both of them!
