White On White


Well i'm so pleased the week is over, as i'm shattered, what with late night shopping on Wednesday - H's headmaster wanted as many children as possible to join in the singing on the high street, but to be honest it turned into a bit of a disaster as although we had the words to the songs, i couldn't hear what they were singing, so we couldn't join in !!!, then last night was H's school fete - where we waited for half an hour to see Father Christmas (even though we had a time slot of 6 - 6.15 !!), H made a hanger to put on his bedroom door and decorated a bauble.

Today's card is so far out of my comfort zone, but i thought i would give it a try - normally when i do WOW cards, the image is allowed to be coloured in, but there are a couple of challenges that want it all to be white - the sentiment (PB - 'So Very Merry') and the snowflakes (all taken from PB Transparent set 'Crystalline') have been versa marked, then covered in WOW embossing powder 'White Pearl' and heated, the frame is covered in Stampin Up - Heat & Stick Powder, then Dazzling Diamonds, the embossed piece is CB - 'Ice Crystals' with glitter brads added, the poinsettas are Marianne D covered in Crystal Stickles.

I couldn't see the sentiment on the first image and thought the circle looks a bit empty, lol! Gorgeous card, the flowers are so pretty. Lovely to try something different sometimes and it has worked brilliantly.
