Stampin'Up Vintage Vogue anniversaries

Happy Monday everyone!!  A start to a new week,  they sure pass quickly don’t they?
I had a few anniversaries I needed to make cards for lately, and Vintage Vogue had to be inked again, is been a while. I made two very similar looking cards with 2 different colour schemes.

The first one is Bravo Burgundy and Very Vanilla Bridesmaid papers with a touch of Old Olive. When I stamped my flowers I used bravo ink and Ruby Red. 
I wanted the flowers to have some depth and using two colours achieved that. 
Here's a close up

Lovely dimension with the layered flowers. I also had some fun with the scallop oval punch for my sentiment.
Second card has a Sage Shadow, Close to cocoa and again Vanilla bridesmaid papers. I love those papers so elegant. 

I put a bit more work into this one , can you tell this was the first one I made? By the time I had to do second one I streamlined the design dramatically. LOL

Similar but nothing like one another. I think I should have added some pearls to the centre of the flowers, I did add some dazzling diamonds and they sparkled nicely but you can't see it in the picture.
So what do you think, which one is your fave?
Got to dash now thank you for visiting me and till next time big hugs xxx
