Grid Challenge

Today's cards were inspired by another challenge on the PW message board - the use of "grids" in the layout.  I've also been working on using up my stash, so these cards use older printed card bases and shaped brads - both from Hot Off the Press.
I find my tastes have changed and some of these card bases seem a bit too busy.  Toning them down with plain colors helps a great deal.  The greetings on both cards are stickers.  The one I used on the second card was originally silver, but I wanted gold since the brads were edged in gold.  My gold alcohol ink mixative worked great to change the color.
