My Spin on the Pin {8.24.12}

A week ago, I shared a card that I wasn't 100% pleased with.  After changing it up a bit, I ended up with a card that made me happy.

Here's my 2nd Spin on the Pin...

What I wasn't happy about on my first card was the ribbon.  I don't know why, but I just didn't like how it looked.  Rather than using ribbon on this card, I chose to put my stamped sentiment there instead.  And then blinged it up a bit with some pearls.

Since I already had the sewing machine out, I went ahead and made another one, but used a different flower in the center of the scalloped circle.

I like it a lot.

It's hard to see, but the center of the flower is raised up a bit with 3D foam squares.

So what do you think?  Do you like my first card better, or these ones? 

Have a great Friday, and Happy Pinning!

I think I agree with you. I like this card better. I like the one from last week too, but this one is so cute!

Can I ask how you did the sewing with a machine? I am just starting to make cards and love the way you did this one, very beautiful!
