CAS gone bad!!

I am up to my armpits in cutting/prepping for tomorrow's classes but I thought I'd share a card that I made a couple weeks back for the Clean & Simple Stamping FTL98. I finished this card and looked at its opulent excess and was happy -
What's not to love - dry embossing - textured watercolor paper, a blossom with a butterfly perched on top, heat embossed sentiment from A Muse, Zva pearls, ribbon, patterned paper. Nothing is missing - EXCEPT one very important thing!! The part where this layout was supposed to be CLEAN & SIMPLE!! Oops! Couldn't post this card to that challenge - so I went back and tried again -
Now this IS a clean and simple card! Equally beautiful - frankly more beautiful to me with less of all the "stuff" that I cluttered the first card up with. Two very different cards with one very simple layout! Which card do you prefer?

They are both wonderful but I really like the 1st one! Guess I'm more of a "foofy" kinda person! ~~Pam

I love them both, but I choose the first one cause it's very shabby chic! Amazing how the same basic layout can look so different!
