Make it monday Generational stamping

The Challenge at Papertrey Ink Make it monday is Generational stamping:  Stamping off.

Keeping with my "make masculine" pledge, I made several cards for the make it monday challenge.  I used my new stamps and ink that just arrived yesterday..yea!

The first card is on an old stamping up grey blue with black ink stamped off twice to make shades of greyin the Chevron stamp set. Celebrations stamp and die for the sentiment.

This is also going into the Papertake Weekly Challenge of ANything Goes...I think it might qualify for the additional one color monotone...although it is hard to see that there is any color in there at all! 
Additionally entered into Joanne Sheen Masculine challenge also.

Second card uses new think big set for the celebrate....stamped in 3 colors (chartruse, clay, harvest gold) and stamped off once.  Added a little bling to give a little something extra to it, cause I just couldn't figure out what more I could add to it without ruining it.  I have a problem with that.  I don't embellish well.  If I don't case it, and I embellish it, then often it ends up looking a little odd!

I entering this into Simon Says Stamping Challenge of ANything Goes too.

Third card uses the new ballon Heart 2 Heart #2 stamp set and Think Big Favorites #13.  Used 3 new inks, blueberry, leaf and harvest gold.

I used my phone to add the pictures, b/c it is fastest, but I can't figure out how to turn pictures in blogger on my phone or edit the pictrues on my phone to change them....so I guess this is what you see today! :)

So now, the question is....which of the three is the best?  And are they all good enough for a male?  Or is the celebrate on in the middle have too girly of colors...or are the ballons too girly? the yellow make it to unmasculine?  Have to see what my husband things when he gets home...I am guesing that he will say only one is truely good for a man...  :)
