All White CAS

It's Sunday, and as simple as it sounds, I haven't done half of what I planed.  Just household stuff, some diligences on the internet, and little things... but all has got complicated a bit...  No big issue... I leave it to God... I just went with the flow of the day.

And my friends at Outlawz posted a CAS challenge that I found quite interesting.  All White.  Yes... All white... You could color stamped images or sentiments but all cardstock and embellishments must be white.

I was exposed to "all white" idea recently.. when making my anniversary card. Remember?  But it was because of the crystal theme.  They kind of mentioned to be inspired by snow for this challenge.  When I read "white" I thought of purity, simplicity, honesty...  gratefulness...  so I went for a Thank You card.

I embossed the background and added a punched border for different textures.  The circle simulating a flower was made with a strip, scoring multiple times and then shaping it into the circle.  I made a similar one for my 15th Anniversary card I just mentioned.   Have you seen it?  Come on!  You can take a look HERE.

Then with the stamped leaves, I tried first to use them in a different way.  I just wanted to be as white as possible so I cut them thinking they'd look nice with the shape but no lines, using the other side... but did not like it... so I just left them with the black lines from the stamping, but no coloring.  (I bet if colored green they'd look nice too).

I really hope you liked this card and the challenge.  Have a white Sunday!  Thanks for your comments.
