Christmas card in progress

I'm starting to work on my Christmas card design. I got the idea fromthe Holiday Mini to layer the ornament punch over the decorative label punch. I knew that I wanted to use the Jolly Holiday DSP, Cherry Cobbler seam binding and the Contempo Christmas stamp set. I was trying to figure out how I could have the card base be Old Olive and the ornament be Cherry Cobbler. I saw a video at where she created a mat for the decorative label punch. Could this be the answer I was looking for?

Here are the 2 cards I created. What do you think? Which DSP do you prefer? Which way does the label look the best? Is the Old Olive label too much Old Olive combined with the base? I'm undecided, and I'd love your opinions and suggestions! (I'm also thinking of adding glitter to the center sections of the ornament, but I can't do that until I get home this weekend. )
On Friday, I'll have some photos for you showing how I made the mat for the decorative label punch.
Happy stamping!

I like both cards but personally prefer the DSP with the smaller dots. The Old Olive base and label look okay together as you have that red behind to break it up. Keep up the good work.

They're both gorgeous, Jana. Plus, the beautiful part about Christmas cards is that you only send one to each family, per year. They don't all have to be the same. Vive la difference!
