What do you think of this version?

Hello lovely bloggers out there... 

Remember I made this card a few days ago? Here is another version... Do tell me what you think?

I took slightly textured white card stock and stamped it with my doily stamp using Jim Holtz  Ranger distress ink  - fired brick. I have to say that I do like the result.
The shoe stamp is from Hero Arts and I distressed the red paper with black pigment ink.
The little black piece of paper has been embossed - you can't see much of it though. 
The ribbons and gems are from my stash.
I like this version more than the earlier one but would love to hear what you think?

I am going to submit this for:
Monique's weekend linky party at - no designer paper - white space to show

Have a nice weekend... 

By the way, yesterday was April Fool's day so I played a prank on my hubby and daughter... it was fun! For my hubby I packed an empty perfume bottle really well with some stones inside. He is generally not turned on with gifts but he actually was excited and ripped it apart... only to find stones inside!!! Lol!
And I told my daughter, Zeenya that her favorite cousin was arriving in mid-April instead of May. Was she delighted!!! That was a bit mean but it is okay, it was April Fool's day!!!

Monica, I like both of them! I think they each have a little different style which just proves you are good at useing your stamps in a variety of ways.
