Scrap Challenge - a little decorative paper with coordinating solids

Today's cards make good use of leftover scraps.  I had just a little of this dotted paper left and needed to do something with it.  I made two cards with it.  This first one uses a purchased tag sentiment with additional hand-made tag.  The mats & multi-layered border really help this card pull together nicely.

For this second card, I didn't have much of the dotted paper left - just a couple of narrow strips.  But I had the plain colors I had pulled together to go with it for the previous card and decided to run with them.  This is what came out:
I could have added more embellishments, but I thought this made a nice card that would work well for a male.

Nestability dies and fancy edged paper cutters really make a difference, don't they?

Both of these are nice cards. I don't own many of the Nestabilities or Spellbinders but do love the ones I have.

Yes, those dies can make such a difference on a card!
