It's a White Party!

Hello Bloggers -

Over at Our Creative Corner they are having a "White Party!" I have thought about this for the past few days and have never done an all white card. Being that it's all white, it's all about the texture of the card.

I was totally excited to use my newly won blog candy from True over at True's Gifts from the Heart. She sent me the most amazingly beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (along with a ton of other amazing things that I'll be sharing over the next few weeks). Among the flowers are these beautiful white flowers and how perfect are these for this challenge.

It's a White Party!In putting this card together I had to go back to my high school days of arranging flowers. I forgot how fun it was to arrange them. I think next summer I'll be checking into working in a flower shop!! I also love the embossing I did with a new set from CTMH. Where I struggled was with the sentiment. I tried using my vanilla stamp pad - but you can't see it!! It'll be fun to use on some black cardstock...hmmm!

I hope you like my card. I really enjoyed putting it together. Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day.

Theresa

Stunning... elegant... gorgeous... postively drool-worthy. I think all those other comments sum this card up perfectly!! Theresa, OMG, this is freakin' PHENOM!! Here's another superalative... this is not a card, this is a piece of art. Positively, absolutely, without a doubt frame worthy. Go get yourself a shadow box and frame this one, sis.
