I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas at Crafty Ann's


I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
 ~ white on white background with a coloured image/topper ~

This is the last challenge 0f 2012 and a new challenge will start in the new year
  4 January 2013

This lovely poinsettia is from the  Trad-Temporary Christmas digital scrapbook kit*
I  printed it on on photo paper and decoupaged three layers and I think  it looks real pretty. 
A little tip (though maybe everyone does this already, lol)  - I don't like to see the white cut edges so I always go around the edge with a matching colour marker - this seems to give the layers more substance.

I've sparkled up the Nestie floral oval, some of the snowflakes and around the edges of the snowflake embossed BP.

Simply finished with some white organza ribbon found languishing in my stash.

I painted the snowflake - made with the XCut embossing punch - with iridescent medium and added glitter while wet, and added it to the bow. 
Shame you can't see all the sparkle in this pic.

*Most if not all of the elements in any of the scrapbooking kits can be used for cardmaking, they are not just for scrapbookers :)

The lovely DT have made a great job of ths challenge and their samples are well worth a visit over at   CACB .
We hope you will play along with us for this final challenge of the year and look forward to seeing your White on White creations and wish you a Merry Christmas and very best wishes for 2013.
