WHITE ON WHITE AT BAH! HUMBUG!


Hi peeps - hope you are having sunshine today?
Are we all determined  to start making our Christmas cards before December??!  OK - if you need a kick-start (like me), why not join the girls at Bah! Humbug! as they come up with the most fabulous Christmas challenges, and this time it's WHITE ON WHITE ! (OK - so my card may look blue, but it really is white - honest)!!
And here it is:-


Recipe:-
Cardstock - Whisper White from Stampin' Up
Fabulous stamp - "A Christmas Carol" from Papermania
Embossing Powder - Personal Impressions Opaque White
Glitter around the main image, and a little here and there on the ornaments - Dazzling Diamonds from SU
Lacy Squares Nestability Die - I die-cut two of the largest squares then chopped them down to create one large rectangle frame. 
Tiny Holly punch - a really really old one from All night Media (you can just see the holly leaves along the base of the frame).
Pearls from my craft box.
That's it folks - one less card to make in December!!
I would like to enter the following Challenges:-
Ooh-La-La Creations - Christmas.
Pink Gem Designs - White on White.
Craft Room - White on White.

Lots of love to all ~
