A 60th Birthday Card - Female VS Male

As a nice change to all these Christmas projects I have made two different birthday cards.  My husband came home yesterday and requested two cards.  One female, one male - both needed for 60th birthdays next week.

I had an idea to use Everything Eleanor but when I sat down to make it it came out very different than intended & I ended up using Apothecary Art stamp set & Label Framelits instead.  Do you have this happen to you?

I really love Primrose Petals which is surprising as I was not that keen on it when it first came out.  I am an In Colour girl all the way and tend to reach for those before the usual colour families.

Then, to make the male version I wanted something a bit less "fluffy" if you know what I mean.  I haven't used the paper piercing mats before so I thought I would try using them on this card to add something different to the design.

For the male version I used some retired DSP called Elegant Soiree.  The Apothecary Framelits were a bit to rounded so I trimmed the top & bottom to give it a more masculine feel.
