All Right, sorry White!!

Hi everyone,

School holidays for a week - ideal time for the children as right near Halloween. Anyway, no Halloween card today but an all white card (mostly!) for the challenge at Colour Create. I managed to find some embossed card in my stash that I have had for ages - a freebie at some point - but is really lovely (I think so anyway - still hankering for a die cutting machine to do the embossing!!).

Shock horror I have actually managed to use the sketch at Midnight Madness as above. I say this because I find them very challenging - which is good but I have shied away from them in the past. Have changed the shape a bit and the placement of the flower.

The image is one I received in a candy win, but I haven't a clue who she is so if someone knows please let me know - Thanks. I coloured her with my favourite water colour crayons and glittered the daisy with my favourite crystal glitter - can you see where this is going!! I punched out two flowers in white glitter card and 3D'd them putting another favourite in the middle - a gem! The Scallop shape is from a punch and was cut in half - again punched out of my favourite white glitter card. More gems around the side. Here is another view for you.

I am really pleased with the result and here are the other challenges I have entered:-

La La Land Crafts - Sparkle (glitter and gems),

Charisma Cardz - Delightful Daisys,

Daring Cardmakers - 5 of your favourite things (Gems, glitter card, scallop punch, Water colours and crystal glitter)

Frosted Design - 3D (Flower),

Practical Scrappers - Punches and

Crazy4Challenges - 3 geometric shapes (Square card, circle with the image and two triangles).

Another card which I have enjoyed making and has used things I had forgotten about. This is what it's all about!! Please let me know what you think - I do love reading all your comments.

Thanks and hugs

What a cute card, Dragonlady. I think you did a wonderful job using the sketch and it does take a bit more imagination but it's so worth it, as the cards turn out great, look at your cute image! Love your glitters, snowflakes and embossed background paper. Thanks for joining us this week and hope to see you next week! xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT

I really like the white on white dp's. I have some of that embossed paper... I love how you have used it in the corners. Your take on the sketch is just lovely. I hope that you keep sharing your artwork with us each week! You did a fantastic job. The sketches are alittle more challenging but the end result is a lovely card that you should be very proud of!
