CCNS117: Let It Snow two ways

Hello!  Did you have a white Christmas?  Ours was just a bit damp but no snow.  Oh, well, I can still bring on the snowflakes in the craft room though!  I made two cards with this Let it snow Snowman stamp from Quietfire Design.  On the first one, I used clear embossing powder on plain white card stock and sponged in different blues:  Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Salty Ocean distress inks.  I then used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to trim it out as well as make a matting for my white card base.  I added some snowflakes using Impression Obsession Small Snowflake Set and popped up my sentiment with some large foam tabs.

For my second take, I clear embossed on watercolor paper and instead of distress inks, I used Ultramarine Blue color burst.  The card is brighter but the "let it snow" did not pop up as much so I colored it in with a white gel pen.  Which do you like better?
