One Layer Wednesday #72 - Sentiment Only

This is my second post for today. 
For my FOR YOUR INSPIRATION post, and a little tour of Brisbane, scroll down.

Hello!

Susan at Simplicity has given us an ultra-difficult challenge this week for One Layer Wednesday. At least, it's ultra-difficult for me! The brief is to use only one sentiment stamp on a non-standard card size. That's it! Nothing else...just that one stamp...eek!  And we have to do at least two versions of the card.  Oh dear!

My cards are 4.25" x 4.25"  All are made with PTI white cardstock, and PTI Stylish Sentiments Holiday.
The first one is using SU! Real Red
The second is made with SU! Early Espresso
The third is made with glittery red embossing. The next photo is an attempt to show how sparkly it is.
I'm not sure you can see it, LOL!

I like the Real Red version best. Which do you like?

Yes this could be a tricky challenge....a stamp and sit on your hands type for me too!!!
The sentiment is so pretty it really takes centre stage well and my fave is the real red too :)
