Not 1... Not 2.. but 4 Christmas Cards!

Hello everybody,
After a cyclone in south India, weather in Bangalore also has become very cold. Its raining for past two days and temperature has come down. I was feeling very sleepy whole day but I had done only sleeping yesterday. Lol. So I geared up and thought of making a Christmas card. I made one and then another and then another and made 4 in total.
I made this card first. And I liked it so much that I started making another immediately :) I just love kraft and white and it was on my mind for so long to try this combination. I stamped that Christmas tree, sentiment and those lights with vintage sepia Versafine ink and then added some details with white gel pen to depict the snow. Tree and lights are from Jingle bells stamp set and sentiment is from Santa and friends stamp set from Mudra.
And Now I present my second card

I used almost same technique as earlier card to make this card as well. Only I used white colour pencil to colour those beautiful bells because white gel pen would have been too much white pigment for those bells.
Both bells and sentiment are from Jingle bells stamp set from Mudra.
Now I come to my third card
 I stamped those poinsettias and sentiment with vintage sepia and added details with white get pen. I drew outlines for poinsettias and added some white dots as well. And while doing this I started thinking that the earlier look of the card without white details was also not bad.. In fact I thought it was better. So I did 4th card without white details :)
In this version I just added little white colour at the centre of poinsettias with colour pencil. What do you think? Which version do you like better? Please let me know in comments :)
I enjoyed so much making these cards and I hope you too like them.
Here is how all 4 cards looked together
