Urrrg, man Cards are So Difficult

I've been trying to make Fathers Day cards, and I find it so difficult - really hard to resist the urge to add flowers, ribbons, glitter and gems to bling them up!

Inspired by a couple of challenges, I've made a couple of 'man' cards using a Stampin' Up stamp:

This first one was inspired by the following challenges:
Less Is More: 'Sunset'

The Friday Mashup: 'Let's Ombre'

Virginia's View; 'Ombre / Monochromatic'

And here's another card using the same stamp:

I'm entering this one into the following challenges:

Fusion: 'Blue Skies & Smooth Sailing'

I'm quite pleased with how these have turned out, but I still want to add some gems... and one or two flowers would be ok, surely... everyone likes flowers....
