Flourishes May Challenge His and Hers

over on flourishes the may challenge is to make a card using the same layout, but one for him and one for her. This idea appealed to me, so I thought I would give it a go.
I only have one flourishes stamp, so the prospect of winning some more is very appealing ;-)
I stamped the reverse damask stamp using choc chip on some cardstock and layered on brown card, placed a strip of metallic brown across middle, highlighted with a ribbon. Thank You stamped with choc chip on centre panel, and dusted edges with choc chip. Placed pearls & ribbon as final touches.
I didn't think this looked very 'male' but posted the photo anyway. I did, however, have a brainwave when packing up the mess I had made while making these cards and rumaged through my embellishments - I knew I had something 'male' somewhere ;-) I think this version is a better 'his' card ;-)
The female version of the card used the same layout, only using red as the base colour and embellished with flowers and a bit of bling.
My first male card was definitely not very male ;=( more unisex maybe ???
I have so much of a hard time with male cards - the desire for bling just gets in the way LOL
