White space with a hint of pink

This card is for the sketch on today's 365 cards, calling for white space.

I have to admit that I cheated a bit on the white space. I ran some white card through my cuttlebug and embossed with an Ellison paisley texture plate (had a lot of goes at this before I had success because I couldn't remember the 'sandwich' recipe because I haven't used these plates for some time). I then slightly tinted the paisley texture with a pale pink chalk.

Instead of a circle, I recylced a lovely fabric covered dress that I saved from a card (shop bought) that was given to me. This fits nicely with today's Cuttlebug be inspired challenge 70: 'fabric galore'.

Secret crafter Saturday 69 is 'monochrome tones of one colour and white' and it's another card for La-la land 25: 'no DP'. I can't believe I've made a couple of cards today without touching any patterned paper.

It was difficult to get a photo (hence the light shining on the dress) - will try and take a better photo in daylight tomorrow and replace.
