Coast to Coast

Happy New Year and the start of the birthday cards
I've got my brothers 50th this weekend so I thought I better get started on a card for him, as I don't have that many sets suitable for male cards I borrowed this set of my friend Paula,It is retired but I thought it would really suit. I ended up with the two designs so now I have to decide which one I prefer, any suggestions?

Top Card
Stamp sets: Coast to Coast,Circle of Friendship
Card:Chocolate Chip,Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, DSP (from last spring mini)
Ink: Chocolate Chip,Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue
Other: Linen Thread, Eyelets,Build a Brad, Circle Punch

Bottom Card
Stamp Sets: Coast to Coast
Card:Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel,Very Vanilla
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Other: Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon,Cuttlebug

In my professional opinion (hehe), I really love the top one!! Your idea of putting the knotted rope across the top is just brilliant, and the colours all goes so well. Like the bottom one too, but the top is my personal favourite. Go with that one.

Hi Diane My choice would be card number 1 or the top one whichever you want to call it. I think it is fabulous. Not sure Grant would appreciate the 50 emblazoned on the front!!(LOL)
