Thinking of You for WWC 141

I checked this week's challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday: WWC141 - Heidi's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge and I want to enter this card for the challenge:

This is another version of a card I had made for class last week after listening to a video from Linda Cullen where she was showing embossing with a mask, tone on tone i.e. clear embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock. I wanted to experiment with other colours so I used a piece of Early Espresso and for the embossing, I tried with the Copper embossing powder. Quite pleased with the results actually. 

To me this card has a masculine feel to it with the colours and very few embellishments, leaves and wooden element. A card you would send to a male friend to let them know that you are thinking of them.

Here's a comparison with the other card I first made, which was a complete CASE of Linda's card. Love this embossing idea of using masks instead of stamps to emboss.
