June A Muse Studio Blog Hop!

Welcome to our June 2nd A Muse Studio Consultant Blog Hop! This month's it is all about masculine or neutral cards. If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Christina Seeger's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog. You wouldn't want to miss out on any of the other wonderful samples by the other participating consultants.
I made two cards using the same basic layout, but I changed up the colors and shapes that I used, which gives them a completely different feel and look. For my first card I used Extraordinary Background, Mad About Plaid, and Ahhnouncing. I love how this card turned out! I love the shades of grey, with the little pop of red, and those two backgrounds together just make me happy!! Perhaps my mojo is returning!!
For my second card (which is actually the first card I made for this post) I used several scraps that were on my desk. Say it With Style is the stamp set I used along with the Harlequin Impression Plate. I sanded the eucalyptus paper so the embossing really shows up nicely. The striped paper is a scrap of our School Lined Card Stock, love that stuff! I finished it all off with some Cherry Stitched Ribbon and a Bermuda Button.
"Now on to your next stop Pamela Fredrickson's  blog.

Both cards are wonderful but my favorite is the first one--I like the pop of red against the neutral background.
