Two 4 Tuesday -- Baby boy Again!!!

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

First I would like to apologize for hitting you with yet another baby boy card... But since I didn't spoke to Catherine since she went away to see the sun, I didn't knew what she was going to do for yesterday's post, and I made those cards on sunday night, probably around the same time she was doing hers !!! Let's just say that we really think alike and this is not the first time something like this happens...almost freaky...Love you Cath.

This week Two 4 Tuesday was inspired by this sketch over at Karen Giron's blog :

I really wanted to demonstrate how changing only the pattern paper could make such a huge difference in the feeling of a card :

The first one all in Bashful Blue as a serene and peaceful look

While my second attempt, with papers from the Sale-a-bration is a lot more playful and energetic...

Sentiment hidden in the "wave" is Rock-a-bye ...

Which one do you love better ??
In my opinion, both cards are perfect depending to whom the're gonna be given...Let's say I would send the monochromatic one to a new mom, who really need quiet and peaceful nights... While the other would fit better a mommy yet to be, with all her excitement toward the arrival of her new and beloved baby.
Have a nice stampin' day

Great Cards, I love your choice of card size. They are both great, but my favorite is the colorful one.

Oh wow, those are gorgeous!!! I like them both, but I think maybe the colorful one might be my favorite. Love the teal and orange combo... And LOVE the sentiment following the wave. That was a brilliant designing move! :D

J'aime le format de la carte et le design des papiers étagés, super idée! Ma préférée? la bleue est plus calme, mais la colorée est vibrante et dynamique, je serais heureuse de recevoir autant une que l'autre!
