Pink Bow Birthday

I seem to be on a roll with Pals Paper Arts Challenges.  This week's theme caught my eye, again. The challenge was to use brads.   I love brads and I tend to get carried away when I get the chance to use them.

I made two versions of the card for my entry.  Here they are together.  The first card used rhinestone brads and plain brads in different colors.  After I studied it a while, I redid the card with one more layer  and using brads all the same color.  Which do you think I entered in the Pals Paper Arts Challenge, PPA95, this week?

Here's a closer look at each of the cards.The first version...

And the second version.

This is the one I entered.  It seemed to need the extra layer, and it wasn't quiet as jarring as the sample that used multiple kinds of brads.  I also sponged the edges of the Decorative Label with Soft Suede to give it dimension

Here's the card recipe:
