Color Challenge Time at Sunday Stamps

Welcome back to another Sunday Stamps Color Challenge!  This fortnight we are featuring the colors Midnight Muse, Strawberry Slush and Silver.

My card was made following the Repeat Impressions What If Wednesday Sketch #J184  using Close To My Heart colors Outdoor Denim, Hollyhock and retired Silver metallic paper.  After I pieced my card front together I ran it through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss it with a Darice Snowflake Swirl folder.  The penguin is from Wintry Wishes which is a Close To My Heart Hostess Reward available through the end of this month (see page 9 of current Idea Book).  Outdoor Denim ink was used along with a Hollyhock marker to color the hat and scarf and a Slate marker to color in the skates.  The flourished square with circle opening was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 53 Square 4 at 2.25")

Here is a second version that I made with a slightly different orientation and a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder:

 Which do you like better?
