White on White at Penny's

Hope you are all well.  Halfway through the working week and I am now on countdown to the weekend.  I am so looking forward to this weekend.  On Friday evening me and hubby are off to Birmingham to see the rock legend that is 'Meat Loaf'.  He has announced that this is going to be his final tour and I am so glad I got tickets.  I have seen him five times already over the years but he never disappoints.  Such a showman and just love his music.  Then on Saturday morning I have to be up bright and early as me and mum are going to Ally Pally for the big stamp and scrapbooking show.  I have a wish list as long as my arm of goodies I would like.  But I am sure that hubby will understand that I do need all of it lol.

Anyway, enough waffle and onto my card post for today.  A new challenge is starting over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges today.  Our theme for this challenge is:
White on White

Our two fab sponsors for this challenge are StampArt Design and Delicious Doodles.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full details and to enter the challenge.

For my project I used a super image from StampArt Design called Pretty Petals which can be found here.

Now the challenge rules are that the image can be coloured but I decided to just add a bit of shading - talk about make it difficult lol.  I used lots of embossing and die cuts to create interest.  I also added ribbon and pearls and pierced around the edge of the card to add interest.
I think the most difficult part of all this was trying to get a decent photograph lol.

This is the first full white on white card I have done so would be interested to hear what you think.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.
