Masculine Valentines

These are my creations for my first Magnolia card swap. I joined the Magnalicious group @ yahoo a few months ago because I saw and fell in love with Tilda and Edwin. I continue to find my way around the databases and files. There are a few activities I would like to try. With this being the month before Valentines Day, I decided to try my hand at a more masculine card that I can give to my husband. He is so not into pink and flowery. This CAS card should be more his style. The second one will work for any friend as I just put a "Be Mine" sentiment on it.

 
 
 
These cards were made using the exact same supplies and taken in the exact same lighting. I don't know why the coloring is different. The top picture is probably more accurate colorwise. The DP is just some from my stash that I have had for years. I colored the red jewels with a copic. The hearts were made with a punch from Creative Memories. I used Christmas Red Stickles around the die and heart.  I printed the sentiment using Word before I punched it. I used Mini Tilda with Heart and colored her with copics. Its a pretty simple card that speaks for itself.
 
Here are the challenges that I found to enter:

Isn't it lovely how you can use the same basic design and come out with very unique cards every time? You have proven that it indeed can be done with these two beautiful cards.

Thanks for sharing in the fun this month at Avadares Challenge Blog.
