One Card Two Ways

I fell in love with the IA sketch when it was posted and am happy I manged to play with it before the deadline. When I saw the challenge for There She Goes this week I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The challenge is to make 2 cards using identical images, but give one card a masculine feel and the other a feminine feel. Unfortunately I needed a few sympathy cards. I’ve very please with how they turned out and urge you to give the challenges a try. What do you think?

I used the same sketch for both cards. It was PERFECT for multiples and I’ll be sure to use it again.

Color Inspiration
My masculine card includes plaid paper.
I used the colors from this challenge for my feminine card. I added the pop of pink with the butterfly and bow. The bedding set was the inspiration for the color combo.

All Sorts Challenge ~ Recipe 3, 2, 1 (3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 more)
My masculine card fills this challenge. There are 3 designer papers, 2 forms of ribbon and 1 image.
