Winter White's

Better late than never, but ...............Happy New Year to my fellow crafters out there, I hope you all enjoyed the holidays as much as I did! :-)  I promised myself that in the new year I would try to do alot more blogging and card making challenges.  I struggled finding the time towards the end of 2012, so start as I mean to go on, and my first entry for 2013 is Winter White over at Cheery Lynn!

I got quite a few yummy dies for christmas off my lovely husband, and for this challenge I was able to use three of them on one project!  So as the name suggests, the challenge was to use all white with the exception of colour for the main image.  I chose to make a 6x6 easel card which I quite enjoyed!
I matt & layered a piece of fancy white card onto some spotty backing paper from my stash.  Found a lovely pale blue sentiment from one of my Kanban kits and put Stickles around the edge.  The Cheery Lynn dies I used were Lace Corner Deco B, Francesca Border and Lace Fairie Queen.

The die cut shapes also got the stickles treatment, then positioned onto the card once dried.  I used a piece of plain white card on the base, which I ran through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  Then finally the finishing touches as usual were some flowers from W O C.
