CAS and Stepped Up Focus: Nesting Finches

Hello!  Michelle here with a fun feature that I am going to do occasionally;  a clean and simple card and then another using similar supplies, but stepped up a bit!  I'd love to hear which cards you prefer and why!  

The images I used this week are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps:  JJ0077 Nesting Finches and CC0069 Thinking of You.

This card uses the same main image, but I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam tape.  I also used hand embroidery and distressing on my card.

So, what do you think?!  Which one catches your eye?


  1. I prefer the stepped up card Michelle. They are both very pretty though. I guess it's just a matter of taste. Gorgeous image & great coloring too?
    Hugs, Maureen

  2. Both cards are pretty, but I prefer the stepped up card. I love layers and I love the way the background is offset. It provides a lot more visual interest. Interesting concept - to show two ways to do the same kind of card - I like it!

  3. I have to say I like them both! I also think you are the queen of fussy cutting!

  4. Both of them are beautiful!!! I love the first one though!! nice colors... beautiful image!!

  5. I looked at the first card and thought, "nice, I like it!" Then I saw the second card and thought, "WOW, I love it!" So I guess I like the little extras on the second card best!

  6. Both nice but I think the second one is my favourite.
