Say it in...white!

Morning everyone. Wow, I can't believe how this week has flown by!! Friday arrived a day early for me, that's how busy my week has been, I didn't know whether I was coming or going. LOL!!

So....our challenge over at Annabelle Stamps this week is to create a card in WHITE! I didn't think this would be too difficult, but I have NEVER made a just white card before!! At the end of the process I was quite happy with my card, but not super happy with the way it photographed, it looks a lot better in real life! So, here is my card with a few close-up shots, so you can see some of the detail you are not able to see in the main card photo.





I used the "Flowers with Love" set for the image and sentiment that I stamped onto the card. I used some Opaque Vanilla embossing powder which is available at Annabelle Stamps. The flowers and heart pearls are also available from Annabelle. I added a bit of Icicle Stickles to the flowers and used 2 different embossing folders for texture.

I hope you will play along with us in this challenge. A white card is perfect for a wedding, anniversary or christening card! You have 2 weeks to get your card together. And REMEMBER you still have 1 week left to enter our Sketch challenge where you can win the lovely stamp set shown in my side-bar!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. xx
