White on White

It is Friday and  your know what that means......Totally PaperCrafts Challenge time.  This week our most sweet, talented Cathy challenged us to do white on white.  I decided to combine a formal feminine look with a shabby vintage image.   This image is Melissa from Sugar Nellie.  I love the intensity of the little girl studying the flower without even seeing the expression on her face.

I colored the image with my Copics, embossed a piece of white paper with the "Dotted Swiss" Cuttelbug embossing folder. I then cut out a center rectangle using the scalloped rectangle Spellbinder.  The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with a scallop punch and folded in half.  I tucked have of the sentiment under the dotted swiss frame which made it stand up like a fan.  In the picture it looks crooked, but that is just a trick of the camera.  IRL it is straight.  I glued some paper flowers and pearls from my stash along the card.  The lace butterfly is from Martha Stewart.  The border was made with a scalloped edge punch from SU.

I was, as my friend Sarah says, "quite chuffed" at how this turned out. LOL  I just love the drama a white on white card creates.  So please grab some white papers, embellies and have a creative session.  Some people find it quite challenging.  Let me know how challenging you find making a white on white card.  Hey look at the great prize you can win from our sponsor "Simon Says Stamp".  I wish I qualified to enter this one.                                                           .                                   

Have a great weekend.  I have to work at Coastal Carolina University graduation tomorrow.  It is held  outside at the stadium  and going to be in the 90's.  I have to be there at 6:30 AM so I feel a nap will be on my Saturday afternoon itinerary. What special plans do you all have?

If you haven't entered to win my Candy, please do so.  I think you will be "quite chuffed" to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the Sassy Cheryl Store.

Happy Crafting,
