The detail that's different? The white faux "threading" is not on the first one but is on the second. Not sure which one is better. And believe it or not, there is silver detailing on both cars, it's just the lighting in the photo that's a bit different, so you can't really see the silver in the first car. Weird!
Now I know the piercing is more lined up than the second one, but that's becuase I purchased a new plastic canvas circle today to use as a piercing guide (it only cost me $.49 for a 6" circle), and it takes a bit of refining to get it just right, but I figured it out - you just need to pick a corner of the hole to line your piercing tool against and be sure to do it on that same spot on each hole all around.
Here's the second card:What do you think? Which is better? Well, here's the details:
Sets: Classic Convertibles, Making Tracks, Mixed Greetings
Colors: Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red, So Saffron (basic gray ink)
Other: Metallic silver paint pen (details on hubcaps and grate), white gel pen, paper piercing, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals
I highlighted the outer edge of the car circle and word cutouts with the inkpad direct-to-paper technique.
Did I forget anything? I hope not... but hey, I hope you like these cards.
PS - recognize the So Saffron triangle corners? They are the scraps from the Wild About You cards I made. See, scraps come in handy sometimes, especially when I hadn't put them away so they were still sitting on my stamping table! lol
