Lucky you, I know you wanted to see two cards.
This first card uses the Perfectly Preserved set (yes, again). It was for both a color challenge (tangerine tango, cherry cobbler, baja breeze, basic black) and sketch challenge (found here) a long time ago.
This second card is CASEd from a card I saw on Pinterest. I wanted to use up some of my old paper and this layout is a great way to use up scraps. I thought this might pass as a masculine card. There isn't anything frilly on it, as long as you don't mind yellow. It's a bit time consuming to cut out the brown squares, but I love the result.
