It has been a while but of course the holidays always take me away from crafting!  But, I did see that City Crafter Challenge Blog has a challenge that is right up my alley....."Snow White"....basically an all white card which I love to make!  Here is the lovely inspiration photo that was included:

And, I actually went almost totally with this photo....even down to the placement of my bling and ribbon to mimic the lit candle.  I used a Spellbinder's tapestry die to create the "lace curtain"  and then to copy the opaque look of the windows I used vellum behind the die cut.  Since the challenge refers to "Snow" white I also used double sided tape along the edges of the velum  and then pressed some glitter on it for a frosty look!   Finally, I used silver for my sentiment along with some rhinestones to further a crisp winter look.  I loved this challenge and really, really hope that I will be able to play along again before it is done.  It is such a challenge for me to work an all white card and still make it interesting!

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday - Countdown to the Holidays and also the Simon Says Stamp Blog Anything Goes.

The inside is really hard to see but it is white card mounted on silver with a silver embossed Merry and Bright and two snowflakes on the upper portion.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday yesterday....and are ready to gear up for the next one!  

Take care and Be well,

WHat a great design, Sheila! I love the pure white - this would be a great wedding card style, too. Brilliant use of vellum - you did this inspiration up proud!
