CMC Challenge - White

I finally found a minute...well maybe a bit more...to do the current challenge over at Colour Me Creative.  The challenge this time around was to use the inspiration photo and make a card that was mostly white.  I found this a little bit difficult.  I have seen so many amazing projects done this way and I really wanted to give it a try.  For this card, I'm also using Fancy Marci from La-La Land Crafts, this is the first time colouring one of their great stamps.  So, thanks for looking!!!

I sure hope you can see the glitter on the top of her dress and the trim.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill; Cuttlebug: Seeing Spots; Punch: MS (Daisy Fan, Double Loop & Corner), SU (Scallop Trim) & CM (Corner); Ribbon: Celebrate It (Sheer Creations & Signature Statement); Stamps: La-La Land Crafts (Fancy Marci) & Kaiser Craft (Birthday) & Cornish Heritage Farms (Birthday Centres); Buttons: Making Memories & Misc.; Ink: Regal Rose; Embossing Powder: Gelly Powder (Pink of Me); Distressed Stickles: Spun Sugar; Misc: SU (Smooch Spray (Vanilla Shimmer)) & Crystal Effects, MS (Glitter (Carrera Marble))

Well, the sun is finally shining and Sring has arrived and today I have a Christmas Card to share.  It's time for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop.  I wanted to get my card done a little bit early so I worked on it last week.  I think this paper is really fun and the pink is so bright.

Toonie Thursday

Today we make a really fun Never Ending card.  I have made this type of card before, but the dimensions for this card were slightly different.  When making this card we used several different techniques.  It was lots of fun to make.
