A Variety of Flurries!

Have I ever shared with you the fact that I have a hard time deciding things?  Just ask my husband.  It drives him nuts.  He asks, "Where should we go for dinner?"  My response, "Oh, I don't decide!"  But this anti-decision making is sometimes harder than what's for supper....

Let's take this card for instance.  I wasn't happy with the first one that I made, so I tried it again, and again!  

This is where I need your help!  I can't decide which one I like the most...can you help me out?

The first sample is above.  You'll notice in the close up that the card base was embossed with Stampin' Up's Stylish Stripes embossing folder, then spritzed it with Vanilla Smooch for a sparkly look.  The snowflakes are from Festive Flurry and were embossed using Iridescent Ice.  

Here's the next card!  My photo isn't real great - I tried to edit, but it just wasn't working!

Here it is in full form:

I just left off the sentiment in the upper left corner and put it across the card.....

And finally the next card!~~~~

Now - before you tell me which one you like the best, or what you'd change, let me share one more thing with you.....

I noticed when I was heat embossing my snowflakes, when I used Versamark, it had some "color" to the snowflake.  I was really going for a white on white look.  So I grabbed my Whisper White Ink Pad.  So in the following photo, you are looking at them side by side.  One with Versamark, then sprinkled with Iridescent  and the other with Whisper White Ink and sprinkled with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  Can you tell the difference?

Yep - the one on the right was stamped with Whisper White.  I'm not exactly sure what was up with my Versamark Pad, but it could be one of two things or a combo:  My Versamark Pad has some staining to it, or my stamps weren't very clean.  

Okay - now let me know what you like, what you'd change, etc.... I'm ready for it!
