All White

This card is for the Twisted Sister Challenge on SCS - these gals are such a special group of ladies and have become like a family to me - I love Fridays and look forward to our challenges.  We travel on a thread called 'The Old Broken Bus' and have a lot of laughs along the way, we have been known to shed a few tears, what a blessing these gals are...and we are not exclusive...anyone is welcome to play!!

This week our challenge is to make a card that is all white - NO SPONGING!!  NO COLOUR!!  The only exception is that we could have gold, silver or black on our sentiment......I am feeling pretty smug right now as I didn't even do that - no colour for me girls - it is ALL WHITE....except for one thing - the brads have a small bit of silver on them...which I supppose keeps me at the back of the bus for breaking the rulz - never mind I think I am being joined by a few others this week - I have caught glimpses of colour on some of the cards - not going to be lonely back there this week! LOL!


I used an embossed background, which I distressed and layered onto white CS, which I also distressed - if you can't have sponging you have to have texture and distressing!!  I added a strip of gorgeous whote lace which was given to me in a RAK from a dear sistah Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz) I save this for special cards, the layered flowers were also from Sabrina - she filled Craft Central with white - how blessed am I!!  I added butterflies which have been punched from embossed CS, these have been glued on and had small pearls added to their bodies - you would be surprised how these pearls made it 'pop!' 


The final touches were added with paper piercing around the word 'YOU' that I chose to use as a sentiment and pearls added to the right hand corners....very easy and not as challenging as I thought it would be for me - I think I am starting to get a bit used to working outside of my comfort zone!!

This card also fits the ABC Challenge where 'F is for flying!'
Flutter by Wednesday is open as long as it has a butterfly or fairy.
Thank you for stopping by, I am so appreciative of your comments - you bless me!!  It is Saturday night here and cool - we are all cosy inside...I am hoping to get another card or two done tonight once everyone goes to bed - I am a late night crafter...it is our 18th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow, I have made a card for DH but daren't post it until he is in bed as he drops by sometimes ('Hi Love!) and I do't want to spoil the surprise - so I will see you a little bit later!!  God bless you!
