All White

Welcome to this weeks new challenge on
which this weeks them is
White on White (minimal colour)
Our sponsor this week is Heather's Hobby Haven and the prize is  $15.

My card this week was a sudden last minute inspiration and really very quick to do. Which is a good job as I haven't been very well for a couple of days. I am late putting this post on this morning, normally it would have been done last night ready to go but I yesterday evening in bed poorly.
This card as I said is quite simple,it's an C5 size card but I have cut a couple of inches of the front so you can see the inside edge.The background card has been embossed with the Sizzix swirls embossing folder and a piece of white ribbon to cover up the join as it had to be embossed in two sections (we need bigger folders really).I have added a few gems to the ends of the swirls on the bottom section of the card.
The heart is a white ready made doily, which I have added a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink to in Tumbled Glass to to make it stand out a little from the res of the card. The flowers in the centre are from Magnolia, I think they a really beautiful if a little expensive. I have then added a large white ribbon bow to the top.

On the inside corners of the card I have cut two corners using the Marianne Designs new corner dies. They have been distressed slightly to with the Tumbled Glass, although again you can hardly see it, it just makes them look a little less white. Very simple but very pretty I think, it would make a perfect wedding card.
