Simply Masculine

Greetings once more.
 Yes, another masculine card - this time it was made with the Less Is More challenge in mind.

It was quick and easy to make - a sentiment from Kiwistamping, a flourish from Stampin' Up, some Pearle thread (no string on hand) and a button.

The stamps were embossed with gold embossing powder which added a lot of drama to the card.

I somehow think this really epitomizes the Less is More ethos. 

This is being linked to:
  Less is More - A Masculine Card

Thanks for visiting - I really appreciate the fact that you visit!

May your day be blessed

Great CAS card Maxine, but as Mandi has pointed out, sadly, you have combined more challenges than is allowed in our guidelines.
