One Card 4 Ways

Hello!  Happy New Year's Eve!  Its the last post of 2012!  I had a little crafty time the other day and I ended up using the same image 4 ways.  I snapped some photos and thats what I have for you this evening.  For all versions I am using PTI cardstock in white and blueberry sky.  I am using versamark ink, white embossing powder, blueberry sky ink, and pure poppy ink.  The image is from PTI Through the Trees.  The tag is from hero arts.  The sentiment is from PTI Through the Trees.
Version One:  For version one I matted the image on white card and rounded the corners.  I adhered the tag to the bottom of the image.  I wrapped the twine (Crate and Barrel) around the card several times and tied a bow.  I added red stickles to the bird.  I used red bling on the flowers (hard to see the red in these pics- sorry I am no photographer).
Version Two:  I broke the rule of three by only having one red thing (the bird).  I covered the bird in stickles.  I added blue bling at the bottom.
Version Three:  I used my snowflake CB folder on the base.  I added blueberry sky grosgrain ribbon and red buttons.  I covered the bird in stickles.
 Version Four:  I think this may be my favorite.  I used swiss dot CB folder on the base.  I rounded the base corners and also the blue corners.  I covered the bird in stickles and added stickles to the flower centers.  I used saddle stitch pure poppy ribbon.

Well what do you think?  Which is your favorite?  I have to say since I did all the stamping first and embossed all at once these came together very quickly.  Might make a nice giftset.  All you would need is a little box or something.  Thanks as always for stopping by!  I hope 2013 is good to you!

They are all so beautiful!! I also think version 4 is the prettiest, but version 2 comes in clos second in my book. Even though you broke rule of three, I LOVE how the just the bird is red.

These are all lovely, Michele, but I think the fourth one is my favourite, too!
Happy 2013, my friend!

Nice set, Michele. I like the fourth card the most, too. I like the swiss dot embossing and the red ribbon.

Happy New Year!
It's like mass-producing but on a smaller scale. I think I like the first one...because I love twine. Cute little set. I see you took a blog vacation too. Just that time of year. And now we're back to the grind...
