Variations on Congratulations--Which Is Your Favorite?

I got inspired to use Betsy's Blossoms by this post from my upline and Pretty Pals leader, Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty.

I used a different color of ink, a different layout and different embellishments, but you can definitely tell I was working off of Mary's idea.

After making the above card so much like Mary's, I decided to really play with the background more and this is what I came up with.

Still having fun, I thought I'd girl-up the card a bit and came up with this simple and quick card. You can see that one or two simple stamp sets and a few embellishments can really take you down several paths.

Which card to you like most? I'd love to see your comments and favorites.

I like your second card best, with the stamping all over. Has a bigger impact!
I have done some experimenting with the Betsy's Blossom stamp set, too. I think they all make great background, or create your own paper design, or whatever you want to call it. I don't think I have found a set so versital in a long time.
