Crafty Ann's Challenge #48


 Crafty Ann's Challenge #48
It'll be all white on the night!
The only colour should be on the main image.

This is the first time I have made a WOW card but once I got started I really enjoyed making it, though I have to admit it was a struggle not to ink any edges, LOL

I chose this gorgeous gold poinsettia with script from Ann's new Metallics collection and matted it on to a glittered Nellie frame.
I used two CB embossing folders - swiss dots and snowflake and seam binding ribbon where the two met.  All edges have been well distressed with my trusty metal ruler.

I used the poinsettia flower and leaf as a pattern for the parchment embellies and my new embossing punch for the glittered snowflakes

Added a gem in the flower centres, a greeting ticket  and two home made stick pins.

I hope you will be able to join us for this challenge. If you pop over to CACB you'll see the gorgeous creations the DT have come up with for this White on White challenge
