one for a guy, one for a gal

Flourishes has a challenge this week to make 2 cards. One of them should be for a female and the other needs to be for a male. Besides this, the other condition they have for the challenge is that both cards must be made using the same sketch. The sketch is your choice. So, I gave it my best shot. The sketch I used is from Taylored expressions. So, both my cards qualify for that challenge too!

First up is the male card. I created this birthday card thinking it can be given to a boy. Pretty simple image used which I colored with water color pencils. It was really hard to restrain myself from adding some bling, so I sneaked in some glitter. I think blue is the ideal color for this card.

And although I had not initially planned it, my card also qualifies for the color challenge on color create which is blue and green.

High Hopes Stamps wants a guy card created so I'm entering this card there as well.

Now we have the girl card. I thought this would be a nice card for a lady who likes gardening or loves her garden. I think we all love our gardens. Ok, I don't have a garden but I love my potted plants anyway. I like how the coloring came out. I used colored pencils and water color pencils. The can and the grass are the watercolored parts of the image.

This card is also my entry for Three Clovers Designs Thursday Challenge. We need to have flowers on our cards for this one!

All in all, I'm quite pleased with myself for todays creations. Do u like? Let me know!

Till later,
Happy Crafting,
