TLT - Michele's Challenge - WOW (white on white)

I don't know where to start. Do I mention the fact that the week has zipped by and it's time for TLT again (boring!) or the fact that we had 101 entries for last weeks challenge???!!!!! 101...can you believe that! I don't envy Sue the task of picking the winners. Thank you to everyone who entered...they're all flabulous!!! Check out the Challenge Blog to see if you're one of the winners...good luck!!!

Before I go onto my card I want to wish our Lovely Ladybug Tams a speedy recovery. She had back surgery yesterday after suffering months of pain. In amongst the pain she managed to finish her cards for last week and this weeks challenges even though I told her not to!!

So this weeks challenge was set by our craftylicious Mary Poppins Michele who chose WOW or white on white. I {heart} WOW cards ... they're so fresh and pure. As I've done a few baby cards like this recently I wanted a change so I went for Bride Nikki and this is what I came up with...



This card came together very easily...don't you love it when that happens! As soon as I'd decided on Bride Nikki,  swirls popped into my head so grabbed my swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder and swirl ribbon....what a perfect match :-D A bit of stitching and some pretty pearls and job done. Oh...and how could I forget...GLITTER lol


I love the fact that there is very little colouring in this image....it took me longer to cut it out!


For a change I glued a little crystal on her dress


I stamped the Congratulations sentiment from the Baby Baby set and punched it out with my SU! Word Window punch.

I guess that's it...I'm not going to waffle today...you've had enough of that from me lately lol. All I'll say is make sure you visit the rest of the Ladybugs and leave some love (we thrive on Ladybug Love!)...you won't be disappointed :-D

Thanks for popping in today

Catch ya later x

I am impressed Kerry! Not only is the entire card gorgeous (love the pearls in the corners, especially how they are each following a different direction) but you made a white image on white pop. I wouldn't even attempt that. Great job and thanks for the posting reminder, duh!

Anita said...

Absolutely jaw-dropping gorgeous Kerry! I LOVE this card. The stitching looks perfect and I really like how you've cut out the image and placed her on the layered nesties. I'm going to have to steal ... uh, I mean, borrow ... that idea. The swirled embossing and the swirled ribbon look like a perfect match.

Thankyou for your lovely comments on my blog.
I think the Ruby Fairies card shape is called Diamond Front. It's easier than you think to make. Lyndsey has the instructions and is going to e.mail them to you today.
Have a lovely day!
Diane :-)xx

Hi Kerry!
Thank you so much for you wonderful comment on my WOW card! I am genuinely gutted I was too late to enter, but don't go changing the time just because of me...I should've read the rules lol! And thank you for taking the time to look at it anyway!

I really like your cards and your blog so I think I may just have to 'follow' you :) (I won't stalk you, I promise!

Quick question...what are 'BFF' stamps?
