Basketball Herb

There is a new release and freebie today at StampFairy called Herb Basketball.  I find male cards so hard to make, and as such I'm not really pleased with this one.  I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum, but it just didn't feel right, so I added some star buttons and pearls, but even still, something seemed to be missing.  But I didn't feel that I could add bows and ribbons to a male card, so I decided to stop.  What do you think?  If you figure out what is missing (other than my mojo), let me know.

    He is really cute Annette. Can't really think of anything missing. The papers are perfect and you added just enough embellishments. Noup, perfect ;) Hugs! Mojca

    Nothing wrong with your mojo at all hun, this is exactly the problem with male cards! :)

    They always look like they are missing something and I always feel I have short-changed on them without loads of embellies.

    This has the perfect balance and great colours and papers for a guy card!

    Hope you have a smashing weekend! :)

    hugs
