… A Guy Card

Hello ladies.. thank you for swinging by today!

Well i would like to share a little story about my card.
So, i pick this handsome guy from the new Whiff Of Joy City Girl Collection 2 and could not wait to make a card with him. Than he is on my desk and my head is blank :-(
Finally decide on the papers i want to use and the layout comes together. I actually like the card!
Proud of myself – i pulled it off.. show the card to my husband and he finds the layout and the card boring. WHAAAT???!
Okay… i was kind of speechless and upset… he does not like flowers, thought the loop with the ribbon is a bit different… but oh well.
I know that with all the cards i make each week or months.. they can not all be great and to every ones likes but i was kind of expecting a little more support and praise from my own husband.:-)

Stamps: Whiff Of Joy City Girl Collection 2
Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps
Papers: Basic Grey 6x6
Embellishments: Ribbon (Stampin up) Brads (Making Memories)
 Have an awesome summer day!!!

I think it's fabulous! I try not to ask my husbands advice anymore on my projects. He always has something he doesn't like and it always bums me out.

Husbands! What do they know about the speciality of cardmaking? I always make the same mistake and ask my really very supporting hubby for his opinion and regret it the same moment.
The card is everything but NOT BORING, I like it really very much though I would not have given him a blue jacket, I would have coloured the jeans in blue.

Also wirklich!!! Da hat sich dein Mann aber ganz schön geirrt...haha aber das kommt ja bei Männern öfter vor ;)
Das Layout ist einmalig, und perfekt für eine Männerkarte. All die Details runden das Gesamtbild super ab. Deine Coloration sit wieder einmal sensationell.
Ich hoffe ihr habt einen schönen Urlaub!!!
