Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #4--it's a bright one!

It's time for another Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge!!  This past week was hosted by my
good friend, Jen Carter!!  This week's challenge was to create a masculine card and then turn around and make a feminine card using the same layout and same stamps!  Wow, this WAS a challenge!  I absolutely LOVE this group because it really makes you think outside the box and get you outside your comfort zone! 

You may need sunglasses for my cards today!!  Here is the masculine card I made without LAYERS!!  I also challenged myself to make a card like this because I tend to keep adding and adding!!

Please don't look too close to the sentiment as my Copics got a little out of the line and I tried to "fix" it but it was too late last night to redo this so it is what it is!!

Here is my feminine card using the same layout and stamps.....this one you may REALLY need sunglasses!
I had fun with this color combination.....both of these color combos came from a Pier One flyer I got in the mail!  This just goes to show you never know where you will get inspiration from!

In honor of the new Simply Chartreuse color coming out from PTI any day now to my doorstep....I decided to get out my Chartreuse Palette ink pad.  Here is a close up of the sentiment strip and those buttons that I just had to add **something** to them!!

Here they are side-by-side for a comparison!!  What do you think? 

Why don't you come play along with us!  We'd love to see your take on this challenge!!

How did you do the curly button string? It is adorable! Love both of the cards and an excellent use of spot dot for male/female looks. Don't worry about the copics getting away from you. Happens to me, too. Very sweet cards!
