A Weird Card????

That is what hubby called my card last night when I showed it to him. Weird?
Here is the conversation:

Hubby: "The stamp is odd" then he looks and says "IS that a Tail???"
Me: "Yes dear, that it why it says "Have a tail wagging day""
Hubby: "Why does that kid have a tail?"
Me: "He is a Goblin"
Hubby looks at me oddly, then hands me the card back and says " Your color combo is really weird too..." and walks off.

Ok, now he is my best critique, and he does help me a lot with improvements, but is this card Weird? I did push the edge a bit, I really have been doing that a lot lately. Trying new things. But did I go to far into Weird? Let me know... what do you think?

I did this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge. This weeks challenge is another of Katharina's sketches and it's another great one! I loved it as soon as I saw it. When I sat down to decide what stamp to use, I realized that I have had Magnolia's Goblin William and have never inked him. Guess he scared me a bit. So I inked him up and colored him in with my Copic Marker and highlighted with Sakura Glaze Pens. I used DCWV Nana's Nursery Boys for all of the pattern papers and followed the sketch. I then added some Cloud Nine Gel Stitches, and doodling with the Sakura Glaze Pen and Buttons. The sentiment is from Hanna's Stamps. Ok so really what do you think? Over the top? I may have another go at this challenge.....
And I have to SHOUT OUT A BIG THANK YOU!!!! Wow you are all so fabulous you really shot me over the 5000 mark! Thank you so much and keep it up I plan to visit each person's blog that links me. And for those that don't have a blog. I am trying to come up with something, never thought that part thru, I'll work on it.
If you haven't seen the blog candy see yesterdays post- and please do leave a comment.
Have a great Tuesday - it is MIL day for me. For those that don't know, one day a week I take my Mother in Law and we run all of our errands, hit the mall and where ever else is having a sale. Our shopping day. So I must go get ready. I have a couple of craft stores on my list! Thanks again!

LOL that's so funny, I can just picture it because that's exactly what my hubby does - I'll give him a card, he'll look at it make some smart comment then just hand it back to me!! (Although he does like my Magnolias but reckons he could draw me some and save me the money! - I have one of his attempts somewhere) x
