Hi everyone! Well it's pretty darn cold here and I know you all are dealing with the same temps PLUS a lot more snow than we got. I hope you're all staying safe and warm :)
I made this card for the WOW competition on the Sugar Nellie blog but didn't have any Sassy images, which were required, so I couldn't enter.. however, this is the first time I've ever done a WHITE ON WHITE card and I just love how it turned out. I followed the sketch over on The Sugar Bowl.
It's hard to see but there is a layer of white vellum covering the background on the card. I painted the edges of the vellum with white acrylic paint and stitched it on. Then I embossed another piece of white card to use as a matt for my image. You can just about see the white lace peeking out from behind the flowers/image.
I kept my image monochromatic by using all Earth tone copics. I added some tiny pearls for the buttons on her shirt and then covered the whole image in glossy accents.
Both the grungeboard heart and hinge have been painted white and sprinkled with snowflake glitter. Once the glitter was dry I added a white threaded button to the heart. I punched out two different types of leaves from white cardstock. Then I added some star dust stickles to them all. I painted the curled stem of my cherry blossom to keep the card as white as possible.
The pearls swirls are by Prima and I've just cut pieces off as I needed them so that I could add the swirls to suit the card.
To complete the card I added two tiny tags, one with a sentiment and the other with some more pearls. I've also glittered up the edges of the tags. So I reckon this card glitters enough to enter it into Copic Creations challenge. It also happens to fit the iCopic Lover colour combo challenge and Totally Gorjuss with their challenge " For Someone Special" as I gave this to my daughter today for her birthday. She's been eyeing it up since I made it so I figured she'd love it as her bday card :D

Well that's it from me for today and possibly for the week. I cannot believe the Christmas day is only 5 days away!! I don't have a single gift wrapped and I still have a couple of people to buy gifts for. The kids are finished in school on Thursday until Jan 10th, let's hope they don't get too bored eh?!
Have a wonderful day, and if I don't get to blog before then, have a WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON!!!
