Default BD or FS?

I am debating on which of the following background stamps to get,
By Definition or French Script, which one can you not live without?
I tend to use the scripty image from Botanicals when I want the FS look, but it is on the small side.........

Thanks for your input!
Valerie

I love them both, but if I had to choose, it would be French Script.

I have french script and LOVE it but I've discovered a need for By Definition. FS is great with vintage, formal and elegant cards. But I NEED (yes, not want) BD for retro, trendy, hip type of cards. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you are comparing apples to oranges. These two stamps are used for very different types of cards. Determine your personal style and that will dictate which stamp to buy. Warning, if you're like me, your personal style will change on a daily basis and you'll need BOTH stamps!

I started out with BD because I had the Botanicals set and used that for script backgrounds. I have since gotten the FS and have only used it once. But I do see myself using it more often.

I have noticed that I use BD more for cards or projects that I make for younger people (in teens or 20's).
