White on White.

I must admit - this one was harder than I thought it would be. The challenge was over on the Less is More site and the rules were 'White on White - no coloured images or additions' This - I thought called for layers and textures. So, out came the 'bug and my favourite embossing folders. I did flowers, butterflies, nesties but nothing seemed to work. Then I got out my paper punches (my craft space looks like a bomb's hit it!) and slowly my card began to take shape. I'm still not happy with it - the concept 'Less is More' escaped me at this point and I had to rein myself in with all the leaves and fronds! I added some white glitter to the fronds but that cannot be seen in the photo - take a look
Yikes - how hard is it to photograph white cards?!!!!
So in the end I used white card stock throughout, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Stampin' Up 5 Petal Punch & 2 Step Bird Punch and a Pine punch - phew, see you soon - Jacqueline xx.
