Need a Masculine Birthday Card?? or a Scrappy Card??

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge over at Split Coast. Here is the sketch we were given:And here is the card I created using it.

I always need more male cards in my 'stash supply' so I decided to use my new Artful INKables Motorcross set and this fun Basic Grey Archaic designer paper - which I thought looks kind of like a dirt bike trail with it's colors and swirls!On the helmet - I cut out the visor shape from a piece of acetate and attached it over the stamping with the brad so it looks like a real visor on there. The sentiment is punched with the word punch from Stampin Up. Both the helmet and sentiment are up on foam dimensionals.
I really like this sketch today! Maybe it will inspire you to create a card using it too!?
Stamps: Artful INKables: Motorcross and Basic Salutations
Paper: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust: SU, DP: Basic Grey Archaic

This card is for the Ways to Use it Challenge over at Split Coast - to make a card using paper scraps from your work table and also for my weekly Double Dare challenge I do with a few SCS friends.

The Double Dare challenge was hosted by Beverly (Beestamper) and she gave us a sketch to use.

And here is the scrappy card I made using the sketch!

We also had to use this weeks color challenge of groovy guava, sahara sand and whisper white. This card is so out of my norm - I tried to get really scrappy here tearing and distressing and sponging! I felt like a mini-me of One4Joy today - she always makes collage distressed cards and is much better at it than me!!!

What extremes! I love both of them. This really shows off your talent Julia. You can go from masculine to sweet and feminine in a snap. Hugs, Jenn
