Faith Hope Love

White on white is a favorite, so when I saw it was this week's challenge at ODBD I decided to make a card & not wait until the last minute--for a change--LOL!  I recently re-read in an old stamping magazine that you add interest to an all white card by using various shades & textures.  I used 3 white card stocks--textured, regular weight & heavy weight.  I would love to add Verve products to my collection & I really like the Mojo Monday sketch. I've never entered that challenge--fun to try something new.  
ODBD Vintage Border 
Background is embossed with an old satin embossing powder, as are the Sweet William flowers. The image from Fancy Labels was embossed with white ep. The words are also from Sweet William & are stamped in Memento London Fog.  These leaf dies from 4EnScrap are really pretty cut from the textured paper. Pearls are still my favorite embellishment & are what I think of with white on white. 
I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Pixies Snippets Playground since the sentiment strip, flowers & label are from scraps.  In this case, I'm proud of myself for finally cutting into that beautiful white textured paper!  Love that you took time to come by--thank you so much.

This is so pretty. The satin embossing powder is so lovely and the leafy die with the cut away arts glued partway down has such a feeling of movement and grace.

Lovely card.

Beautiful Greta! Perfect white on white card. Thanks so much for stopping my my blog. I don't always check the SSS blog - there's always so many entries. I NEVER thought I'd actually ever win. Thanks for letting me know! I'm always afraid to cut into pretty patterned papers too. This is lovely though and was completely worth it!
