White on White

I have finally got round to trying a project from Creative Expressions Book which came out late last year.  I have looked at all the projects and have been amazed at the cards produced.  I decided to try a "Guess Who" yes a Sue Wilson card.  This is my interpretation of her card

The light has not been good over the last few days to get a reasonable photo so I have shown two so you can see the full effect

Snow White  Centura Pearl Card
Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Garden Lattice Folder
Spellbinders Label Twenty
Creative Expressions White Organza Ribbon
Spellbinder Rose Creations for Roses and Buds
Spellbinder Floral Ovals for Centre piece
Stamp from Creative Expressions Treasured Memories
Jewelled Organza Circle from stash (bought it ages ago for another project)
Pearls and Gems from stash
This was my first attempt at piercing round a card and I did not get the corners quite right so covered them with a gem.  As I said this is my variation of Sue's card and I quite like it.  I have made a box for it which I have to decorate.
Another day of snow, when will it ever end.  At least the main roads are passable, it is only the side roads that are giving problems.  If we travel two miles down the road, nearer the coast there is no snow and they are wondering what all the fuss is about. Our weather is amazing.  We are forecast a better day tomorrow.  Luckily I was not required to chauffeur my sister today, her husband could not work outdoors and was there to drive her around, boy was I glad.  Let me walk the dogs in this but I hate driving in the snow. 
I know this is said very often but I do appreciate reading your comments and read each one eagerly. Who would have believed that I would have so many followers when I first set out on the Blogging path.  Not me.  I spend a lot of my day browsing your posts and looking at some of your followers for more and more inspiration, and there is plenty of that around.
Well ladies take care and wrap up warm.
Warm Hugs all round.

  1. A beautiful creation Wilma and so your embossed background...we still have some snow down here in Somerset but not had then amount you have had...hopefully it will all soon go


  2. Beautiful result Wilma, oh! my, you must have enjoyed this die and embossing session. That is one thing about blogging you start out to look at one card and before you know it you are somewhere totally different. Very enjoyable though. xx Flora

  11. Gorgeous card Wilma. I love white on white and this is just stunning.

    I know what you mean about the snow. We're only a couple of miles from the North Sea as the crow flies and we have very little snow. I think a few miles inland from us it's quite bad. We've been very far!

  12. Good evening Wima,
    This card is just stunning, loving the white on white.
    Knee deep in the white stuff even had to cancel meeting Hazel could not get my car dug out.
    Could have used the 4x4 but would not have seen where I was going for the freezing fog.
    Keep safe and keep on crafting
