White on White

Morning all, I'm looking out my front room window and the sun is just starting to come up.  What a beautiful start to the day. 
Saturday means another challenge over on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and this weeks theme is 
"White on White"
I find these challenges totally out of my comfort zone and really struggle.  Although I'm quite happy with the way this card turned out!

We are sponsored this week by 
Heather's Hobbie Haven 
With a $15 voucher 

For my card I used another of my favourite stamps from Magnolia.  This Tilda is just so wonderful to colour. I decided to go for a purple theme which looks stunning against the white background. 

These hearts have been cut out using George basic shapes from the Cricut machine (I so should use this bit of equipment more) painted with Picket Fence crackle paint.  To get the holes I punched them out using my crop-a-dial then threaded narrow white satin ribbon through.  Finished off with a mini postage stamp sentiment from Whimsy.  The embossing in the background was achieved using a "Crafts Too" Embossing folder I think its called "daisy".

I've been working on my shading and trying to get the folds in clothes, getting there but slowly.. Roman wasn't built over night!! lol
