Happy 18th Birthday

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  
Today I'm sharing one of two cards I made for my sons 
18th Birthday.  You would think I would be a pro at masculine cards as I have a husband, two sons and a male cat, but I find it so hard making masculine cards.
With feminine cards, you can make them pretty with ribbons, flowers, gems and lace.  But with the boy's cards is so different especially when you have a son that doesn't like a lot of colour and into a minimalist look.  So here's my effort and he did like it, he thought it was elegant.

Challenges I'm Entering:

Card Recipe:

1. Base: White French Linen
2. Coloured Card: Black Bazzill and Silver Card
3. No design Papers
4. Sentiment: Computer generated
5. Embellishments: 18 from Silver Card and Black Gems
6. 18: From Cuttlebug Font

7. Tools Used:

8. Inside and the back of the card.

Take care and happy crafting.

Love your card, and indeed masculine cards are tough! Unfortunately, your card won't qualify as one of our winners this time, as it doesn't meet the requirements of our rules at Seize the Birthday. I hope you will play along again though.

I agree with you. Cards for women are so much easier.
