Happy Birthday, Sweetie!

Life is so busy!   Between work and the holidays, I tried to get a little crafting in.  Here is my sweetie's birthday card I created one morning before running off to work, literally.  These cards were done in less than an hour from walking up the stairs to the studio to taking the photos.  Only thing I left for later in the day was the decision which card to use.  I couldn't decide which background I liked better.   I used washi tape over white cardstock for two panels one card. Then I tried dry embossing and stamping the panels of the other card.  Which one do you think I chose?
