CBCC #21 - TAKE TWO - MY HUSBAND'S CHALLENGE

Hello Again...If you read my earlier post, you will know that my husband thought my FIRST attempt at this challenge was ugly. (Scroll down one post if you missed it) So I told him to grab me another cd... well he picked one of my favorite colors, so where is the CHALLENGE in that? The one color I use the LEAST is yellow - so my cd I picked was MUCH more of a challenge...but hey, who am I to NOT take this challenge...after all, he did drink a beer for me once when I wanted the Beer Cap for last week's CBC Challenge.
Here is the cd he picked out. I rarely listen to this...I figure with the children laughing, yelling or playing in the background I wouldn't be able to relax and enjoy it anyways so I really do not listen to music very often because it adds to the racket. And believe me, I do not need ANYMORE brain activity!!! LOL
And here is the card I made for HIS Challenge...
I used my personal design CHILD OF GOD available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and punched a hole in his hands to loop the flower through it...it kind of makes him look like he is holding a flower, doesn't it? I tried to make him look like he was smelling it, but it covered up his face too much. The floral stamp set is Close as a Memory by SU.
Here are the rest of the details:
Stamp Set: Child of God by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Close as a Memory by SU
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Creamy Caramel, Cream Confetti, Basic Grey Wassail (I LOVE THAT DP!!!!)
Accessories: Primas, Dew Drops, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 1/2 circle punch, Rounded Tab Punch, Dew Drops, Copics

So what do YOU think!? :) I came up with a BRILLIANT IDEA (well, I think so anyways)...my idea will be a Saturday Challenge...I have to figure out how often I want to do this...I was thinking of maybe having it be based on my husband coming into my office and grabbing something (me might be nice, but there isn't much challenge in that, is there? LOL) ok FOCUS...too much coffee, I am rambling...Anyways, he could grab something he THINKS I do not use often - and the challenge would be to use it...What do ya think of THAT idea? It will start THIS SATURDAY! Be on the look out!

Have a great day!
