Jennie's Sketch Challenge at STV

thought I really liked this card...until DH said "what's the card with the crazy  animal eyeballs for?.....".


you know....why do I even let him IN my craft room, LOL! but you know the power of a "statement"....so here it is...my crazy eyeballs card! with a top row that now really does look like some sort of animal with that button in the middle!!! oh well, at least it follows the sketch (:  (its supposed to be a spotlight of Mel's sunflower) and you know how it goes....no time to do another card for this challenge - have moved on...

Stamps: from GKD's "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie
Paper: SU pink, brown and dp
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: ribbon and button fr stash, nestie tag
Technique: colored with copics (even the center of the button), adhesive mini pearls, SU scallop punch

It's Monday and I'm off today....love it!!! and stampin all day until time to leave tonight for the jail Bible study.
Have a blessed day,

What a hoot he is.... Isn't it funny what they "see?" Well, just so you know, I love it! The colors are my absolute favorite (pink/brown) and love the fancy tag you used. Tell your dh Jennie wants to know what animal he sees in that card :o))) Just curious...maybe it reminds him of where he grew up, LOL!

LOL Linda!! He and my DH would get along great I think. I love this card - at first I thought it was seashells (from the thumbnail on STV). When I opened it up, I was pleasantly astounded at the flowers - no doubt in my mind! I wonder if your DH is a little buggy...

Hi Linda,
I showed this to my hubby and he said "what big flowers these are" so I told him what your DH said to which he replied "I've never seen an animal with 4 eyes". I think it's gorgeous. Will be thinking about you tonight.
Hugs,

Men!

They look like harebells to me, becuase you've used a soft pretty non-sunflower colour . Very pretty card

Carrie said...

Lol I don't see the eyeballs, maybe its a man thing. I love the soft colors and especially that nestie tag.

Susan said...

TOOOO FUNNY!!! I think he needs his eyes checked ;o) Love the card!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

That is a riot! Glad you shared those words of wisdom! *Snort*

Patti said...

Your card is gorgeous! I looked and looked and just couldn't see eyeballs.... I even biggy sized it... nope no eyeballs! I think your hubby needs a psychologist... or an eye doctor!Hehehehehe!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Men! They don't know nothin' about card making! This card is a beautiful, blingy work of art and does not look like crazy animal eyeballs!

craft_princess said...

LOL! It looks great....and that eyeball remark sounds exactly like something my DH would say! Then I would just give him the look like...get OUT of the room! :P

JazzyH said...

That is great!

wordbird said...

That post is soooo funny! I'll probley chuckle about that one throughout the day ;D. Actually the top two might make pretty eyes with long lashes...hmmmm... maybe you need to use that idea for a bunny or something! LOL
;D Diana

Shelly Schmidt said...

Beautiful color and shading! You have such a wonderful touch. Your husband is too funny- mine would say something like that as well.....

Kellie said...

Oh, for sure that is a man statement. I love your card and the colors.

Micki Switzer said...

I'm echoing Leigh Ann's comment....Men think those stupid uniforms on Battlestar Galactica are high fashion!!! You made me laugh out LOUD!!!

Karen from PA said...

You can never trust a man in a craft room! I think your card is beautiful. Love the soft colors.

Mary G. said...

Well, I never "saw" eyeballs! I saw a beautifull created card!!! Love how you did the circles. IFB is a favorite set of mine! I think I might need to pull it out and play with it again! Thanks for the inspiration!

Angie Williams said...

I think the card is beautiful. I don`t really see the eyes...

craftieodamae said...

Lori said...

Well, Linda, I'm going to agree. BUT...I thought the flowers looked really cool, before I was forced to see *eye balls* !!! I think it is very pretty.

Scrapping Julie said...

I am cracking up over your husband's comment. Mine is pretty good sometimes, but when he comes up with a statement like that it is usually a doozy! I like your flower card!
