White on White...... for Less is More

Hi dear blogging buddies

Here I am at 11.20 pm uploading a card! Hmmmmm - but I have had a little doze on the settee this evening, and have now come back to life so thought I'd do it now...

Today's card has been made for the one challenge, Less is More (a challenge blog that's going from strength to strength!)....... as I thought it would be a real challenge for me to do 'white on white', which is their theme for this week.  Sooooo without further ado, here's my entry...

It's such a simple card, with what I call a 'waterfall' of daisies!  No sentiment, as I didn't want to print which would have had to have been in black or grey... not white!  Dunno if you count the gems as white???  Anyway, all I did was punch out a quite a few daisies from white pearl, white glitter, and white plain card.... and glued!!  I finished it off with a some stickles (crystal) in the centre of the daisies that don't have gems.  It's A5 size, which is unusual for me...... I'm so used to doing squares, I tend to do them in my sleep!! hehe

I hope you like it - do let me know by saying hello - I've lost a follower today and feel so sad - it's like losing a friend!

  3. Wow! This card is sooo elegant! It's such a brilliant, simple idea, but it's the placing of the flowers and the little sparkles of crystal that make it just fantabulous!!

  8. Love your cascade of daisies! Beautiful card!

  9. Super waterfall of daisies Christine
    Lovely card
    We tried to show the options in our examples, regarding acceptable sentiment. I did die cut letters and Chrissie stamped hers in black. We stressed only the outlines to be 'coloured' as we definitely didn;t want to see any colouring at all
    you nailed it anyways Chris!
    Great to see oyu again

  14. Love your waterfall of daisies. They're so pretty, especially with the different cards you've used for the flowers. Love a bit of sparkle too! Lovely card. (ps, we've emailed the battery hen welfare trust about the two new additons and we're waiting to hear back when we can collect them !!! We're a bit worried that Beryl and Mable will beat them up, or that Mabel will be the runt of the litter again as she was when we had Olive, but I'm sure they'll work through their differences, and if one of our two died, we couldn't just have one; that would be cruel as our girls so love being together) Annette xx
