You won't believe how many times I have tried to do a 'white on white' card only for them all to end up in the bin. I just couldn't seem to get them to look right at all. At last I think I have managed to do one that looks ok.

I started with a plain base card and then added a 'swiss dot' embossed layer followed by a 'swirl' layer. Next came three layers of punched heart borders. The image was coloured with promarkers and cut with a lacey nestie and popped on top. The sentiment came next and this was stamped and layered twice with some pearls added to the corners. There are several layers of punched leaves and flowers with roses added to the larger flowers and pearls added to the smaller flowers. I hope you like this as much as I do, thanks for looking.

You have done a first class job here Christine, I tend to shy away from white on white cards but this one is quite exceptionally beautiful, the image, embossing and design look stunning.
