Bright and White

Hello my blogging friends!

I have a Christmas Card to share today that I made for this week's Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge #30! The challenge is to use ALL white except the image itself and the embellishments. Yikes! I really felt this card needed a silver or pink mat, but I obeyed the rules! LOL! The card is 5 x 7" and is embossed with the Cuttlebug Brocade Window. The paper is actually a glossy paper, of unknown brand. I love using it though, as it has an elegant feel to it. The image is Our Daily Bread designs Blessed Christmas and is stamped 3 times, heat embossed with silver, and water colored with markers and water pen. Then I cut out the entire image with the new Die Cut for Blessed Christmas, which will be available on Oct 1. I LOVE these dies! They cut like butter! I cut the next two layers with various parts of the poinsettia and paper toled it up for dimension.

I added some pink pearl flourishes from ZVA Creative, and some silver and white pearls from Recollections. The May Arts Silk bow finishes it off.


I am also linking to the following challenges:

Theme Thursday- 3 things( 3 different types of embellishments-pearls, Ribbon, Silver Baubles, Pink pearls and white too for good measure)
Beli Challenge - forgotten embellishments that start with B - Bling (the silver baubles and white pearls are old)
Corrosive Challenges- Clean up the dust- silver baubles and pearls
The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Sew Many Challenges - Embossing:my dp is dry embossed, the image is heat embossed

Crafty Pads- Embossing
Alphabet Challenges - 'U' for unused stash-silver baubles and white pearls
Fairy Fun - Embossing
Scrappekammeret- Anything goes
