White on white

Hi to you lovely people and thanks for dropping by.

I am a bit late making this card as I've been waiting for inspiration to strike, but it didn't !! The fact is I don't like making white on white cards but I was determined to have a go and this is what I came up with.

I did a little bit of embossing by hand on the base card and then added a piece of flower embossed card with sticky pads. I used Marianne Creatables dies LR0180 layered doily and LR0115 butterfly for the die-cuts and dusted the edges of these as well as the embossed card with pink chalk so they would stand out. Then I added a sentiment which I had from a magazine.

I really would appreciate your comments - good or bad - and any tips you may have for making white on white cards.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

This is stunning Andrea, I don't think you need any tips on making WOW cards. Your hand embossed base card is perfect and your layered die cuts are gorgeous sitting on your embossed panel. A beautiful card.
