White on White

My husband needed a thank you card for one of the guys at work and don't you know, I did not have one card "masculine" enough. I wanted to enter a white on white challenge so this is what he is getting, lol I am not sure how masculine this is but it seemed pretty neutral to me.

I tried to take the photo so you could see the stunning paper I used (white diamond) from Paper Temptress. This is my favorite go to paper when making a card with no pattern paper. The sparkle it gives is just stunning (how masculine is that! lol)

I love the framed  look I have been seeing on cards and as you can see, I certainly have not mastered that technique. I will most likely keep trying until I am happy with it. Then will probably never do it again. Once I master a challenge like that, it tends to get boring, lol

On the inside I gold embossed the "Thank You" as I did the front image.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Lady Bug Crafts Ink: white on white
Inky Impressions: monochromatic
Charisma Cards: use die cuts
Paper Play: embossing
Stamp Insanity: gold or metallic
Stamping Vacation: use nesties
Craft Your Passion: show appreciation
Cup Cake Craft: monochromatic
