Monster Birthday Party - Foils & Fun!

Many of you may not know this, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Monster stamps! I don't know why, but when I see a Monster Stamp, I just gotta have it! Period. Don't ask me why it's just my "Thing" lol. I recently saw a Brutus Monroe set "Monster Party" on clearance at my local Scrapbook Store, and I couldn't snatch it off the shelf fast enough! lol

I pulled out my Whisper White Cardstock (All supplies are listed down below) and cut enough for 2 cards. I wanted to do one with Embossing Paste (for a challenge I'm too late to enter into lol) and the other in foil. I just LOVE foils! 
I colored in the monsters, which I masked to fit 4 into one little 'party' with my copics. As you can see, I colored in one background and left one white. I used the Layering Circles dies to cut out the monsters and also create a frame with silver cardstock to frame in these adorable monsters. 
I also used the balloons from Bonanza buddies and masked in extra balloons to go with the one that came in the monster set. I used my Sakura Gel Pen to draw in some lines and such on the masked balloons. I also used some Nuvo Drops to add some sparkle and dimension to the circles in the balloons and the monster teeth. 
The sentiment is also from Bonanza Buddies, which I embossed in white. For the embossing paste, I stenciled it over a stencil I made myself with my Cricut. If you want to see a tutorial on making your own stencils with a Cricut, please comment below. If enough people ask, I will do one. 
For the foiled card, I used the same stencil and used Heat Transfer gel & GinaK Sparkling Silver Fancy Foil, then ran it through my Scotch Laminator to transfer the foil to the dried gel. I love how it turned out!

Question: Do you prefer the Embossing Paste Card or the foiled one?
