WOW - White on White

Hi friends! How are you? WHAT A WHIRLWIND weekend - and yours? Our youngest daughter and I left after I got off work Thursday for a 3 hour drive and a 3 day volleyball tournament; we returned home last night about 8:15 p.m. I'm exhausted! Hope you had a good weekend!

This week at Ladybug Crafts Ink, Susan has chosen White on White - check out the design team creations, G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S... Me? Well...yeah... sometimes I get lost. LOL Go ahead, stop and pray Queenie-Poo Kerry doesn't fire me!

Anywho, I love all the Floral Delight images from Ladybug Craft Ink; I knew immediately I wanted to use the retro jug image - LOVE IT very much!! And with all those flowers...well, I can't help it, colors just JUMPED onto my card! I did just fine coloring it up but then had to go all matchy-matchy with this gorgeous die from Lil Inkers (Stitches and Stripes) using pink and yellow to accent the flowers, then came that gorgeous fluffy bow and some twine with a little flower tag which says "thank you". HA - see, you understand how easily this happens right? :D There is lots of white though...me thinks?

I colored the image with Copics, the little swirls were covered with a clear star gelly pen and each of the large flowers was accented with a white gel pen. Some fun light blue to accent the image.


That's it - super simple card to pull together; hope you will join the challenge and be a wee bit more successful than me at following the directions.

Well I don't care what Kerry thinks, I just love this card, ok maybe not strictly WOW but it has the other WOW factor for me.
Love your choice of colours and the fantastic bow.

Sorry you are unable to see the embossing, maybe if you click on the image and enlarge it will be easier to see?
The background die cuts the openings AND embossed the stitched lines. Also known as dry embossing. Thanks.

Love your WOW card! It is a fab card despite not quite fitting the brief. At least you used a digital delight image!
Happy Easter!
