Same sketch, same papers.... different levels of difficulty

Today I am sharing a couple of very similiar cards.  Both use the same sketch and the same papers (I am using the Bubbles and Fizz papers that will be available from SU! in January!  The first one is a basic card using a stamp set and paper.  The second adds other elements.

First up, the basic card.  Really this is all I need..... I used some scraps left over from yesterdays card then just stamped a sentiment.  Quick, easy and postal friendly.  I did mount the fussy cut bottle on foam squares for dimension, but that is all.  Once again.... this is all I really need.

Next up, the more detailed one.  This is the kind of card that justifies all of my purchases ;)  LOL!

This still has the same sketch only I stitched down the strips of paper and a stamped sentiment from the Beverage Bar set.  I used a MFT die for more interest (Cheers).  I then cut out and mounted 2 bottles.  I cut out the bottle cap and added a little stamped sentiment from the soon to be released set Bubble Over and created a little tag out of it.  As a final detail, I added some clear dots.

Once again, the first card is all I really need.... the second justifies all the purchases!  How about you?  Which one are you?

Wonderful take on the sketch, Laurel! I love that you used scraps and the colors are so trendy!

Oh definitely I am the one that justifies all the purchases! ;) I love how you showed the card looks just great without all the extra goodies, but if you go that little extra, kapow...look what you can get. Awesome!

I couldn't possibly choose one since I go between both styles so frequently that my craft supplies are in a constant state of whirl. Ha ha! I love that my sketch inspired two awesome creations! They are great!
