Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge : white Christmas

Oh dear ... just before I made my design card for today's new Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 8. When I started my card I remembered (so I thought!) that the theme was 'white on white' ... there was no doubt in my mind really ... so I got out lots of white stuff to play around and see what I wanted to create, using a Lacy Sunshine image that had kindly been supplied (they are the sponsors of this challenge), 'Emily - winter wonderland, and I thought that for a change I would make a birthday card rather than a Christmas card. Well, when the card was finished and the photo taken, I prepared to send it ready for the challenge and discovered that the actual theme was 'white Christmas' - oh dear! So, big apologies that it isn't exactly 'white Christmas', but it's a white on white Christmas birthday card.

I coloured the image very lightly with some flexmarkers, tearing around a perspex oval and inking the torn edges with one of the flexmarkers. I used some pieces of offcuts taken from embossed pieces of pearlescent card that had originally been run through the eBosser with Embossalicious folders. I cut into the swirls of one of the embossed pieces to house the oval. Flowers are craftime.

As is usual when trying to capture white cards, it was difficult to get an adequate photo - in trying to show the white sufficiently, the flexmarker colouring isn't really showing.
