Two for the price of one

Hi folks here is my card/cards for this week. I first made the black and white card then decided to try it out in a different colour :).I cut a 4inch(12cm) square of whisper white card. Then I stamped the wrought iron corner 4 times in grey to form a frame.Secondly  I stamped the verse and  pocket watch in the centre of the card. I then used my blending pad to add a little black ink.  I also stamped the watch again onto spare card and glazed the face with glossy accents waited for it to dry ,think that's why I like embossing powder, its so much quicker ,once dry I  mounted the watch on 3D foam.
 The topper  was then mounted on black card.To make the backing paper I used  cheap computer printing paper and stamped it with the small polka dot and gingham background stamps . I then went over with black ink  to blend the paper in. Mounted again on black card and finished on a 6inch(15cm) scalloped card. To finish off i added clear dew drops I coloured on the bottom with promarker. I then used a spellbinder banner and stamped Happy birthday  .
 Then because i enjoyed making the card I did the all thing again but used raspberry ripple ink and card stock from stampin up .
The raspberry ripple one was finished off with red pearls.
So here they are together which do you like best ?? Thanks for stopping by, if you need any more information on any of the techniques , just ask.
