Sympathy Done Two Ways

I make Sympathy cards for my church and recently needed to provide some more. So I have started working on some.

I have made two nearly the same which do you like best?
This card is a simple two layer card. The rose is from Graceful Garden and the sentiment is from Rose Wonder. I used Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Basic Gray and Real Red Inks. I colored the Roses with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The layer is popped up with Dimensionals.
This card is a 3 layer card.  I used Thick Whisper White and Whisper White Cardstock. I used Basic Gray, Real Red and Old Olive Inks and colored the rose the same as the one above. This time I popped up the sentiment instead of the layer. I sponged the Old Olive Ink on the edges.

Let me know what you think!

WWC156 - Penny's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Penny is the host this week at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges!
This week I used part of Lots of Happy Card Kit to make my card. 
As you can see the kit makes 4 different sizes of cards. I only make/send the full size cards! I used parts of the kit, layering them onto a Thick Whisper White cardbase. I cut the card base from the kit in half and matted it with Basic Black Cardstock before adding it to the cardbase. I am doing a class with this card in March so I only used 1 of the 2 flower pieces because Watercoloring takes a lot of time, too much for a class.

I love that the Lots of Happy Card Kit has everything needed to make cards, it also has a refill option so you can make as many as you want with out getting duplitacate stamp sets and Watercolor Pencils.
Supplies:
Lots of Happy Card Kit
Thick Whisper White & Basic Black Cardstock
