    I'm so inspired by your card. It's a fantastic masculine card and something that I'm terrified of making! The dark stripes compliment the white and really shows off that wonderful HB sentiment.
    As for your pick of the week...WOW! Gorgeous colors everywhere!
    Hope you're having a great week so far.
