White on white.....Christmas Card

Hi Susan here....

I have tried something that I have never done before, a pure white Christmas card with just the colours of grey for the image. I hope you all like the finished result as much as I do, it was harder than I thought it would be, not to add an accent colour, but then I suppose the green calyx on the flowers was a little bit of added colour.

Yes, believe it or not, it is pure white, just different shades of white.
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background paper. The ribbon and pearls are as usual from our local market.
The ticket was a stamp that I have had for ages but the ticket was a die from Tim Holtz. Stickles was added here and there for a bit of sparkle.

This fabulous image designed by Marina Neira and available from The Stamping Bazaar Store is called 'Jolly Josie', I used a black lead pencil to 'colour' the image in.

The flowers are a mix, the small blossoms are from Crafty Emma's Store, the buds from Fred Aldous here in Manchester, the large rose and leaves I made using a die.

Thank you so much for looking and for all your wonderful comments
Love Susan
