Christmas - White on White

It's been another busy week here, I don't know about you, but I just don't have long enough days at the moment! I'd love to do more cards, but between work, doing the garden and now studying for an exam in Dec, I just can't fit everything in!

I did however have time to make this white only card - a first for me and boy did it take me out of my comfort zone - no cute coloured image as a focal point.  Instead I had to rely upon layers and textures.

So that's the challenge over at Moving Along With The Times this week 

White on White

Give it a go though as you might be pleasantly surprised with the results - I was!

On the whole, this turned out better than I thought it would - still not sure about the top left corner though - should it be bare or should it be filled more and if so - with what???  Constructive criticism if you please!

Hi Janice you card is beautiful with White on White, I may have added a couple more snowflakes only if you had different sizes otherwise it's perfect how it is. Merlot looking so much better thank goodness. Love this Merry Christmas die, well I think it's die or have you a circuit cut machine that this was cut out on? Great card I just love the simplicity of it.
