Sketch Challenge Cards

I made 2 cards for today's sketch challenge. The first one is totally frilly and feminine featuring a paper pieced dress from Gina K Designs and flowered paper from Sassafras Lass.

The scalloped edges are an additional "bonus" on the Sassafras paper because you can trim them off and still have a 12x12 sheet. I love the soft yellow and the blue flowers so I paired it with Bazzil paper in matching colors.

The second card was my attempt at a simpler design. I've been drawn to CAS (clean & simple) cards lately... probably because it's something that I find REALLY HARD to do. For this card I used Pink Paislee paper and a sticker from the accessory book. The stamp set from SU is one of my all time favorites!
Thanks for looking and leave me a little note letting me know which one you prefer.

WOW, Michelle, these are BOTH incredible! I love the layered and frilly dress one, but I have to say you nailed the CAS one, too. It's the same for me, I'm drawn to CAS, but it's really hard!

I really like the second card. It is hard to try something different and you really got it with a great job!

these are both great, love the colors and layout in the first, and the sentiment is so neat with the image.
But I will have to say I am a flower lover and your coloring is just beautiful in the second card!
