White on White

Good morning,

Well as many of you will know I love my challenges at the weekend, yesterday I headed on over to Less is More to see what the lovely ladies had in store for us this week, and my heart sank. The theme is 'white on white' instantly I thought to myself I can't do that, and came away feeling quite upset that I wouldn't have a challenge to join in with. However this morning I was doing the rounds of my favourite blogs when I saw that the super talented Ruth over at Flower Sparkle had joined in, making a stunning card. So I thought well I'll give it a go, if it doesn't work out then I haven't lost anything.

On Sundays I always hop over to check out this weeks sketch at  the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge,


I always find inspiration there, and I thought I would combine the sketch with the 'white on white' brief so that I had a starting off point.


I must say that after all my worrying I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Don't get me wrong I don't think I'll be making another all white card again in a hurry but I enjoyed the challenge of only being able to use white. I went rather heavy on the embellishments but I feel that because they are all one colour that it still feels like 'Less is more', I hope the girls agree!

The recipe
Stamps, Baroque motifs
Paper, Whisper white CS
Ink, Versamark
Accessories, Dazzling diamonds glitter, Heat & stick powder, Square lattice embossing folder, Vintage wallpaper embossing folder, Daisies die cut, Bitty buttons, rhinestones, dimensionsals.

I hope that I might inspire some else to give it a try as Ruth inspired me.
I'm also entering this card into the Crazy 4 challenges blog.

I love the sparkly Baroque swirl and how you've used the narrow embossed strips. A fabulous card that is perfect for both challenges.
