Gimme Sugar Birthday Card

My youngest sister is celebrating a birthday on Friday the 13th and I'm sending her this lovely card made with Close to My Heart Gimme Sugar paper and Sunny Thoughts stamp set (March Stamp of the Month--now retired).

The hearts were die cut with CTMH Hearts Thin Cut Dies and then dipped in Versamark Ink and then embossed with Polysparkle Tinsel Embossing Powder (retired CTMH) to give it some sparkle.  The greeting was stamped in Raspberry Pigment Ink and also embossed with Polysparkle Tinsel Embossing Powder.  The gingham strip is from the Gimme Sugar paper pack also.

The inspiration for my card layout came from Case This Sketch #266:

I made a second card with the same materials but rotated it.

Which card do you like better?

     Bitten by the Bug--Spring Anything Goes
