White on White with the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today Team Marianne are presenting the challenge at the 


with the very talented Suzi choosing the fabulous theme of 

White on White

we are sponsored by the fabulous Sassy Studio Designs
The team were given some images to use and although I am not in Team Marianne, my resolve never fails me to make a Christmas Card every week, so here is what I came up with for this challenge
I love doing these white on white cards, it really makes you think about depth and texture. I have also used my copics and some liquid appliqué for the fully bits.

I have used my MS holly around the page punch on a 12 x 10 inch card, this way when folded the holly perfectly lines up.  I have used my bug to create a Swiss dot textured back ground.  I distressed all edges and glittered them up.  Adding a white ribbon to took the tag under.  The hand made flower contains a pearl brad from the Hobby House and the punched out layers have been embossed with little hearts.  I used punched out swirls and leaves for that extra dimension, adding little pearls to the ends of the punched swirls. The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  The image of course by Sassy Studio Designs.
hope you can see the added glitter on the embossed flower
and the tag tucked under the ribbon/bow

Don't forget to  hop over to the challenge blog to check out Team Marianne's great inspiration.
