Make It Monday - Working With White!

I'm a colorful person... I find white paper difficult to work with. :) I think simplicity is nice but it can't always express ME. Today on Make It Monday, I'm giving white a try. What do you think?

I used one of my favorite embossing folders from The Paper Studio for the background. The look is classy, but I needed some color!

I created the flower using my favorite Provo Craft die (it's for Cuddlebug, but I use it in my good, ole' Sizzix).

Oh, you don't recognize the paper? It's pretty hard to find-- it's scraps from a Boden catalog. Boden is one of the few catalogs that comes in non-shiny paper-- perfect for trendy card accents.

Oh course I needed a BRIGHT color to cheer this card up, so I used a bright blue ribbon for the border. It's hard to tell, but the dark border is brown and the inside paper is beige. Great contrast with white. I also picked up an absolutely HUGE bucket of gems at Joann's, so I'm using them generously.

What fun supplies:

I've still never, ever made a white on white card, but this is a big step for me. :) It's Monday: get creating!
