Pretty in White

We have a great challenge at Our Creative Corner today - to focus on white! Now I'm not promising this is going to be easy - it's called a challenge, after all - but I encourage you to try it! I didn't really know what I was going to do for my card, but I was watching TV with my husband and the image of this card just popped into my head - I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

I first cut out a bunch of flowers with the Flower Fusion die and white textured card stock. I added a pearl to the center of each one and adhered them to my background, which was embossed with one of the texture plates (if you click on the photo to enlarge it you'll see it better - it's subtle, which is what I wanted). I left the bottom of the panel plain to stamp my sentiment, which is from PTI and stamped in Memento London Fog. Finally I added some Melissa Frances white crochet trim - and voila! Done! I think it would be lovely for a bridal shower.

OK, you've heard your challenge - will you take it on and join us? We hope so! Don't forget to stop by the OCC blog and see what the rest of the team has created. Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

I just LOVE your CAS style! This is so perfectly pretty and you didn't pile on the embellies like I tend to do. I love the way you did the flowers, it reminds me of some of the paper work I saw in Denmark! Great job on this challenge!

Your card is simply beautiful! I love your idea of cutting the flowers with texture cardstock. It helps the flowers not look so flat. And the pearl centers really add some elegance.
