White on White

Good morning hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. More sunshine today - yes! Today there is a new challenge starting at Hobbycutz and the theme is White on White.  Here is my card:


Sorry about the blue tinge but it is white! I thought if I photographed it against white it would all blend in so I used blue but now everything looks blue!!  Anyway I have used Centura Pearl card and the embossed background was made using Spellbinders Celebrations EF.  The sentiment and mat was made using Spellbinders Frame One and a Waltzingmouse Sentiment stamped in London Fog Memento ink.  I punched some flowers out of vellum with Woodware and Tonic punches adding some pearls to the centre.  The butterfly was made out of vellum too using a Cheery Lynn die - Exotic Butterfly No 2.  My leaves are a Hobbycutz laser cut which I have painted using Diamond White Acrylic Paint.  Because the card is smaller than my normal I cut the laser cuts with a pair of scissors to fit on my card, they are so easy to cut and trim how you want them - no special equipment needed! Check out the store here for lots of laser cuts.

Here is another 'blue view':


We have a wonderful sponsor this week Iva Nova Chest so please go over to the challenge at Hobbycutz for some more wonderful inspiration.

Thank you so much for looking today and any comments you may leave, I really value your support.  Take care xx

Beautiful elegant card Susan - the vellum flowers are gorgeous.
Sorry I've been missing for a few days - had a mare with internet connection and then my printer wouldn't set up to WiFi and to top it all my email played up this morning!!! I think after hours of sorting it out it's now all fixed - fingers crossed :o)
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

White on white are damn near impossible to photograph!! Stunning card Susan and I suspect the use of the Centura made it even more difficult to get a good shot! x

Sue B said...

Hope all is going well with your new Mac - you will love it when you get used to it !!
