White on White - Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge



Good morning :)  I hope everyone is having some half-decent weather and a good week so far? :)

Now whenever I stumble upon a WoW card in blogland it always takes my breath away, so I was delighted it was our challenge theme this week over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog.  Its a fabulous way to showcase your dies and looks so luxurious even though its quite simple to achieve really effective results.

For my card I started with a 6 x 6 card base and cut the elegant Cathedral Lace Frame and Border Carnivale out of American Crafts cardstock for the background.  I then used the 2nd smallest size Mini Pearl Oval Reflection die for my image backing and embellished the card with small butterflies, Flourish Leaves, layered flowers and pearls.

All dies used on this card are:


I hope you find time to join in this week, as always we have a fabby prize of a $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store and you still have plenty of time to enter.   Dont forget we have daily inspiration from the rest of the very talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too!

This is just beautiful, Alison. The different die cuts give a depth to the card, without bulk, that is hard to get on a WOW design. I LOVE the lace border (makes note on shopping list). It's still raining here! xx

ulrike said...

Splendid - there's white & there's white but your use of the blues & greys for colouring really brings out the cool whiteness of your card & you've used the perfect white pearls. Lovely attention to detail with the consistency of the cool whties. Love all the little piercing detail of the dies too.

Hope the little Time Bandit is learning.
