Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 48 - White on White

Hello!

Can you believe we are nearly into December!  Only 4 weeks to Christmas... eek!  I've not got any shopping done, and I'm still loads of cards short!  Of course doing a Christmas fair at the weekend and selling a whole load of the ones I actually had done hasn't helped... still there's always good old M and S if time runs away with me :-D.

If you entered the Guest DT call from last weeks challenge, make sure you head on over to the challenge blog - it was a tough decision to make and I loved all of the entries!   Right enough waffle, and onto the card!!  I needed a break from making Christmas cards, so as the lovely Pam has set this weeks Ladybug Crafts Challenge and has chosen

White on White

I went for a wedding card using one of the new digi's from the Love and Marriage collection -  this one is the Bride and Groom


I went embossing mad on here using three embossing folders and a Stampendous Heart Vine background stamp with some clear embossing powder too.  Actually this last bit turned out better than I was expecting, must use that one more!!  I went for a pop of red on his tie and waistcoat and her bouquet, and I used some white satin ribbon flowers from my stash over two MS Heart Lace borders.

An organza ribbon tied with a sparkly button and some die cut butterflies embossed with holographic embossing powder along with some of my much neglected Sizzix flourishes finished this card off perfectly :-D.  There should be a linky thing at the bottom of this post with all the links to the bits and bobs!  If not I'll head on back later and fix it :-D

The sentiment is from the Baby Baby collection, as I still have no idea where my wedding sentiments have disappeared to and my printer decided to print in navy and not black, which just looked odd!!

I hope you like it :-D  Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by
