Card #1 or Card #2?

I changed up the card that I posted on Sunday.
I ran out of brads and also wanted to use the color spritzer.
So tell me...
Which card do you like better?

Card #1

Card #2

For more information on Card #1, you can go back to "Catching Up", posted on Sunday.

Here's what I did to card #2:

Sponge daubers were used on the edges of the Jersey Shore Designer Series Paper, Wild Wasabi cardstock, Pumpkin Pie punched stars, and 1/4" punched circles (not shown).

Have you ever used a Color Spritzer before?
This was my first time... SO easy!

I put a mask over the "Happy Father's Day" stamped image and spritzed Brilliant Blue around the edge of the mask.

Here's my favorite part of this card:

The punched star has a natural curl to it after it has been punched.
I just warm up the cardstock between my fingers and get it to bend a little more after adhering the punched 1/4" circle. Cut a Stampin' Dimensional in half and pop it on the card as an accent.

Happy Stampin'!

So you are going to hate me for my indecisiveness but I like elements from both cards! The stars on the second card are great but I like the clean background of the HFD on the first card.

No help am I?

Well, I'm completely backwards from Lori. I like dimension and texture! So I like the stars on the first card and the inked background HFD on the second card. LOL!

Hmmm...hard choice but I'll have to go with #2. I think what did it for me was the main just brought a cleaner, crisper look to it.

I like Card #2. I love the spritzer! I haven't used it in years, I just use Glimmer Mist instead, but I love the look. I also like the popped up stars better.

Card #1 ! It speaks to me!It's visually more appealing...??it feels softer or something! (whadda I know though!) Like them both but #1 gets my vote :)

Don't make me choose!! They're both sooo pretty! I guess I'd say #1 but, that's just cause I like the bursting design on the DSP. Other than that they're both perfectly adorable!

I'm gonna say card #2 b/c I'm partial to stripes.
