Rockin' Robin Challenge

These are my two cards for the Wish RAK challenge to use a bird image on your cards. I received both of these images via WRAK. Now the idea of this weekend of challenges was to make two cards, one masculine, one feminine. I can't decide which one is which here!!
The first card's bird is from the set Spring Song and the sentiment is from AMuse. I used scraps of paper from my scrap bin -- I have lots!!!!! The bird and scallop circle are cut out and embossed using my Nestibilities. I really need to buy some of the new ones!!! Birdie is colored in with watercolor pencils this time. I added some vintage brads and the Riding hood red taffeta ribbon.
The second card is from the set Tickled Pink and the sentiment is Around & About Sentiments by PaperTrey Ink. Now here I colored in the birds with Copic markers and sponged some Bashful blue for the sky. One of these days I'm going to try sponging clouds! Again, I used scraps, even the card base was from my scrap bin!!
What a beautiful day we had yesterday!! The boys spent the day outside helping Dad put up a new trampoline - our other one ripped. I had a stamp camp -- prepared cards for 10 people and only 6 showed up!!! Oh well, they all had fun. Now to get working on some spring cards since I'll probably miss Easter!!!!!!!! And I'll need some reminding of spring since snow is in the forecast for tomorrow!!!!!!!

Both look great, but I think the bird is more masculine to me atleast. :0)
