White on White

Good morning its so sunny and lovely up here in the Northwest hope you have got some too wherever you are!  Today is a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme for this challenge is:


so we want to see just white on your creation apart from your image which may be coloured. Remember if you use a Crafty Sentiment image your entry counts 3 times just add 3 after it, if you are a follower of the Inspirations Blog your entry will count 3 times so just add 3 after it and if you do both then your entry will count 6 times so add 6 after it! Here is my card:

I decided to go with a mono look for this one.  The image is Springtime Delight available here from Crafty Sentiments and I have coloured her with my Copics and some Stickles.  She has been cut out using Dienamics Stitched Oval Stax.  I used Centura Pearl and embossed it with two embossing folders and then cut it using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One.  The flower is a Magnolia Doohickey die, Cheery Lynn Butterfly die and MB Precious Hearts. The pleated ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  

Here is another view:

We have a wonderful prize for the lucky winner:

There is also a Blog Hop:

You have until Monday 21st to join in so hop over to the challenge to see all the details!

I am so pleased to see that Rowan went home yesterday afternoon! Thank you so much for all your kind comments its heartwarming to know there are such lovely people around in Blogland! Take care xx

Little darling Rowan, bless his heart, it's good news when they go home but gosh they go home early now days.

Your card Susan is a breath of fresh air, stunningly beautiful and love that pleated lace. I have never use it but it is oh so effective.
I do hope you are taking time out, have a glass of wine, put your feet up and smile as all's good.xx
