Tequila Or Margarita's?

So I made a card for the first TCPTUES challenge of the month and it was an inspiration challenge...basically a picture and whatever you get out of the pic that inspires your card, go with that. I always find these the hardest challenges, as they are sooo broad! And I need specific. So I made card #1 and just wasn't happy with it. That was a week or so ago, and so today I revamped the same 'theme' and made card #2 (which I think is the one that I'm most happy with and will submit).
Here is the first card:

I'm not going to get into too many details in this post, but it's a TCP stamp or course! Coloured with copics, crystal effects and stickles added. The salt, lime and tequila brads are SU's build-a-brad. I like the way they came out. No idea where the dp came from, found it in my stash. Ribbon is SU. This was from a MOJO sketch.
And here is card #2:
 Again, TCP stamp set, only this time I covered the lil penguin in black and white glitter. Lots of CE added to the glass, and stickles on Pengy's nose, feet and the umbrella and pineapple. I am obsessed with sewing lately and can barely make a card without it!

The flower button die is TCP and the striped thread is TE. Again, not sure about the DP, CS is Stampin Up. This is Jen's SFYTT for this week.

Which do you like best??? Drop me a line and let me know- I'd be interested to see what you think:)

I like them both Jenny, but my fave would have to be the build a brads!
