Christmas Card Challenges #10

I hope all of you are well and that you aren't to buried under the snow.  If you find yourself in that situation I could provide a couple recommendations.  Pour yourself a glass of something warm (tea, hot chocolate, coffee, etc) and do something crafty (its what I do) and play along with a couple challenges if you are a card maker like me.

Today is my first time playing along with the Christmas Card Challenge and it really was a good Challenge because it sure Challenged me!

First of all I have never ever designed a card that was white on white and at first I struggled a bit with this concept however once I saw this die cut in my stash of things that I have never before played with but own, I just knew that it was going to be perfect! 
The card that I designed ended up being pretty simplistic, however it is (in my opinion) classy, simple and fits the white on white pretty good.
I also challenged myself to use Gold.  Its not a colour that I use very often, and I thought this was the perfect chance to use it!

Here is a picture of the front of the card.  
(I apologize for the quality of this photo...its a little dark, but ill take that over the other ones that kept turning out fuzzy.)

Heres a picture of the side view of the card!

I am going to list the supplies that I used for this card, but I do apologize that some of the supplies used are from my stash and are scraps so I will do my best to link to something similar.
