Embrace the White

I just got back from the most amazing day at the beach! I decided on the spur of the moment to head down and it was heavenly - just like being there in the middle of summer. We got pizza at Grottos, ice cream, played arcade games and basked in the sun. Ryan even went in the water, though it was FRIGID..... Ahhhh, can't wait until summmer.

I had the chance to play along with the Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week, Embrace the white. We had to use white and one other soft color. Here's the card I came up with.



I used Papertrey's Polka Dot Basics and Blooming Button Bits stamps. I stamped and embossed the polka dots onto Sweet Blush cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Smokey Shadow ink. I added Melissa Frances resin, a Hambly transparency, May Arts and Maya Road trim and a prima flower. The tissue paper flower was made using a tutorial that Betsy Veldman did not too long ago.



It looks so soft and pretty close up. I have a hard time photographing anything white, and even with photo shop, there's still more grey in the photo than I like.

Also, today is my day at the Noel Mignon blog! Hop on over. I shared a little technique that involves Glimmer Mist, a Glimmer Screen and a white crayon. ;)

So, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
