Just had to do another White on White...

Hi to my blogland friends..
Well, it's confirmed... this is well and truly an addiction!  I love doing White on White cards!!  Don't think there's any cure either.... but not to worry. 

So this is my second entry into the Less is More Challenge (Mandi and Chrissie AKA 'The Pushers' and the ones that have got me into this mess........)

It's a really simple card, the punch-around-the-edge is a MS punch and I layered that onto a square card with 3D foam, the circle type thingie is a Marianne Creatables die cut from glitter card, the pearl gems are, well pearl gems!  The leaves are a woodware punch (i think it's woodware - it's green and I can't remember if it has a name or not on it)....  then the flowers........ my favourite bit!  They're simply made from a circle of felt as I don't have a die for it (i used the bottom of a wine glass (!) for the circle... then I cut a decreasing spiral to the centre.......  rolled them from the outside inward, glued the roll onto the circle thats left in the middle, then sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle in Irridescent.  Well,,,, I couldn't not glitter, them could I?

So there you go....  any known cures for this terrible problem on a postcard please to: Addicted of Wetherby!

Hugs and Happy Thoughts.... (it's thunderstorming here so I AM trying to think happy thoughts....)

PS........ i REALLY must say a massive thank you to all of the lovely bloggers who left lovely comments on my first White on White card....  I was floating on air yesterday (and still am) after hearing all those nice things!
