What no copics?

Hello Everyone,
What a beautiful day here in New England, it is like spring. I am loving it, because I hate snow!
Ironically the card I am posting today is done with white on white. I don't want to see white on the ground any time soon.

But enough about that. My card today is being entered into two challenges (look at me like a pro lol).
Both are white on white and what a challenge that was for me. I don't think I ever did an all white card before. So I figured if you must use one color then you need a lot of texture, which is what I tried to accomplish.

The two challenges I am entering are:

Sweet Stampin White on White

Souther Girls Challenge #36 White on white

I broke out the Cuttlebug for this one and used those embossing folders that I have a hundred of.
I rubbed stickles on to one of the embossed papers to give it some glittery shine. I used white sheer ribbon which you can probably barely see but it keeps it light and adds more shine. I used a Sizzix die for the leaves.
The rubber stamp I used is from Penny Black, called sparklers, it is one of my favorite stamps. I stamped it with Tim Holtz Distress ink bundled sage and then added some extra fine glitter to it.  Can you imagine, I did not use a single copic on here, wow. It did come out very pretty. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! Please come again!
