'Less is More' challenge ( week 7) last two cards

These are my last two entries this week for the 'Less is More' challenge.
I just had to make two more attempts lol.................I need more masculine
 cards anyway................well that's my excuse!
The first card I made here are using 'Serendipity' stamps. A lovely friend
bought me these as she knows I make lots of bookmarks and she thought
they would go really well with them on a card kind of her. I coloured
 them with Copics & Promarkers. The wording is from the same set but it
 was  way too large to stamp that on the card too so I used the same words but
computer generated in gold colour and made a wavy line with them also.I aged
 around the edge of the books matt with Tom Holtz distress inks. Matted that
part on gold card, then onto white linen card.

My second  card is for my brother, I used Chrissie's idea of cutting a nestie down.
Great tip that thanks Chrissie, I did a matt in navy card then printed the image on
white card ( hug bug image). I resized both matt's using Chrissie's idea of cutting
 the nestie down.I then embossed around the edge of both again using Chrissie's idea.
Computer generated wording again, cool dots font ( I think).
Hope you like both cards and are not sick of seeing all my efforts this week!!!!!
