Janet's Corrosive Creations challenge

These are the cards (couldn't decide which one) that I am entering for Janet's challenge.  This challenge to make a masculine card was very timely, as I have just had to make cards for two male birthdays.IMG_0650-2

The first is for my neighbour David - his birthday is today so Happy Birthday!!

I have attempted to combine stripes and circles using the Stampin' Up sets Big Pieces and Riveting.  Thought the buttons would give it a more masculine feel!

This is for my grandson Matthew who turns 18 tomorrow and is crazy about motorcross and dirt bikes.  I am not altogether happy with how this turned out.  The edges of the picture and underlying mat have been roughened to help create some texture. The word "happiness" is from the Stampin' Up Warm Words set.

Please excuse the photo quality - these were taken at night with the cards just lying on top of my cutting mat.

Judy, both cards are awesome! I especially like the dirt bike one! Where did you get that stamp? I MUST have it because my brothers are into motocross and my kids have dirt bikes!!! Great job!

Reply to Deby:
Thanks for the nice comments. I cheated with the motorbike one - this is not a stamp. I downloaded a graphic from Google Images then converted it to sepia tones. Hope I haven't broken any copyright laws but have only used for a personal card, not for commercial use. xx Judy
