It's All White With PPA72

Friday, December 10, 2010

I'm fairly certain I have never done a challenge like this before.  This week the challenge at the Pals Paper Arts blog was all about white.

The design team had made some fabulous cards for inspiration and they definitely inspired me to give it a try.


I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but I reached for my French Foliage stamp set for this one!  That little leaf is so awesome!  I stamped it on white with Versamark and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.   I think it shows up fairly well in the picture.  I added the oh-so-awesome basic pearls in the center.

I didn't make this as a traditional card - it's just a 4 1/4-inch square - because I had other plans for it.  I think I'm going to adhere this to a white gift bag as an accent piece.  I just haven't decided whether I'm going to purchase a gift bag or make one myself.  Or, now that I've given it a good look-see, it might look even more dramatic adhered to a colored gift bag - like maybe a deep, cherry cobbler red!  Decisions, decisions.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
