Stunning tonal technique card by designer Melinda Spinks

I have a drawer full of bright and funky cards all covered in glitz and glam! However, every now and again I find the need for a card that has a simple message conveyed in an understated way. And believe me, I don't mind putting the glitter away!

I tried to keep the card very subtle by using white on white with only a hint of colour in the wood pieces. The chevron background and sentiment are both stamped and embossed in white.
