Scraps of Masculinity with Flowers!


Hello!
I recently mailed my cards for the CAS Flowers and CAS Masculine swap over on SCS hosted by Patty (LaLatty).
I love the CAS style so when I saw her swap....I had to join!

Here's my card for the Flower group:
I am so proud of my Spellbinders Deckle set. I found it at Hobby Lobby on the clearance aisle! I love a good bargain. My flower image is from a muse studio, Beautiful Botanicals 2 set. The sentiment is from SU! Fundamental Phrases set.

Now, here's the warning for the this masculine card. I am NO GOOD at masculine. Why I make this a big deal I don't know. I heard someone say, we fret over the cards of which have the least critics! :) That's so true.
Here's my Scraps of Masculinity:
With the name, you can guess that I used all scraps on this card. The brown paper...well, I've been hoarding that 6" square piece for a long while. It was given to me so I don't know the vendor. It looks like Bazzil. It has lots of texture and looks like leather. I thought it would be a great addition to this masculine creation. The sentiment is from SU! Thank You Kindly set. Now, I couldn't resist adding some pearls. I thought since they were brown....it wouldn't hurt! :)

Thank you Patty for a great swap! I can't wait to see the cards I get back!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Until next time...
Blessings...

Great cards!!! The second one is perfect for the swap theme!! (PS. I think that would look fantastic on a kraft background too!)

These are great CAS cards. It seems like lately CAS cards have become my style so I can fit some stamping into my limited time.

I love both of your cards, Melina! Great job! I love the frames and the way you placed the sentiment on your first card and the papers and layout on your masculine card are just perfect! Thanks so much for joining my card swap!!!
