Live and Love Crafts - The Great Whites

This week at LLC we were challenged for sure!!  At first when I saw this inspiration theme I was freaking out as I've always avoided it but now that I've done it heck it's EASY!!  GREAT WHITES!!  You don't have to balance out any colors so what was my dilemma?!  As long as you have lots of texture it works!

I've used Maja Design's "Vintage Summer Basics" papers but I always get such a kick outta myself when I use summer or spring papers for winter or Christmas.  hee hee!  I used another image from Inkido's "Vintage Angels" collection and distressed it as well as every layer.  



Don't you just love these white poinsettia's?  I used a Magnolia doohickey but before I used the die I added some double-sided tape to some vellum.  After I made my cuts I peeled off the tape and dipped the piece into some GlitterRitz but any glitter will do.  I added some Frosted Berries for the center which already have a bit of a shimmer to them.

 

Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and shabby chic bows are an easy extra embellie to any card.  Ok not that it was easy to think of something to add in that blank space but it was easy to add because it doesn't take long to make up some bows and add some flowers.


This big embellishment piece was FUN!!  The wings are from Live and Love Crafts called "Heaven Sent".  I added a teardrop pearl along with some more flowers and some foam flower buds to finish it off. 



Have you seen all the new embellishments in the store?  OH MA GOSH!!  How to refrain from getting one of each.  LOL!!  And the new paper that's out from Maja Design?!  Oooooooo I can not WAIT to start playing with that!!  Gorgeous!!  Hopefully by the time you seen this post, she's gotten her shipment in.


Thank you so much for stopping by!!
I really appreciate the visits.

You seriously took my breath away with this card. I love it to pieces! So very beautiful...white can sometimes become boring, but like u said, with textures it works. The sparkly poinsettas look fantastic and I adore the bottom of your card with the shabby lace and the angel wings. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! Hugz, Sandy
