Blue or White


I was going to have a go at casing the card that Chrissie did for Less is More but after seeing Susan's card using my absolutely favourite Hero Arts stamp how could I possibly do better or even has good. So I went for casing Jen's card instead. 
Although I've missed out the fish tail banner but I reckon I could get away with it. So I used the Stampin Up Just Thinking, love this stamp cos I can cut out the centre and add whatever sentiment that will fit.
I also use an old one to draw round using a marker pen on contrast card so I can make a mat for it. Also I love to use sticky fixers to lift it slightly off the sentiment.
By using a different sentiment I had quite a bit of space above it so a very handy butterfly to finish.
The top one is in Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake but the one below.


Is using Crumb Cake and embossed with white, edged with Bashful Blue and I used Soft Suede inkpad for the sentiment because I believe it shows up better than Crumb Cake. You can just see that I've used Bashful Blue for the butterfly but the camera doesn't quite show it.
So which one do you prefer, I admit the white was my favourite but the blue is growing on me.
