White on White

Well I am now into my second week of no on-line gaming, Sony are going to be losing alot of money over this if not a lot of customers. To be honest I haven't really missed it and did think I would have more time for card making but for some reason that hasn't happend, although me and the other half did spend two days clearing out the loft a job I have wanted to do for 18 months so pretty pleased with that :)

Anyway onto the card, the Less is More challenge this week is for white on white. Now I have done this before but I have always used a very bold coloured image and then everything else has been white. So I did struggle with this and spent a long while wondering what I could do. I spent the weekend looking through a lot of my old craft magazines and came across a card made in this style although the one in the magazine used some lovely colours and a very frilly pretty flower but I thought it would work well all in white.
I used a pearly white paper for the backing and all the cut out embellishments. Used my embosing board to create the background, leaves and flower centres are Marianne dies. Used a pearl in the centre of the large flowers and liquid pearls for the small flowers.

I hope you like my card this week, really enjoyed making this one and if you have never been over to the Less is More blog then you will be blown away with all the entries and how stunning each and everyone of them are and the amazing Chrissie and Mandi that run the blog and come up with these challenges and visit and comment on every entry. Well done girls you are brilliant :)
