LIM Week 14 White on White

Morning to my LIMette mates - its Saturday so its our favourite challenge of the week.....

I was chatting with Lady LIM yesterday on email as she is kindly donating some cards to my charity card challenge and we joked about her not giving me a hint at what today's challenge would be and I said as long as it's not acetate again it will be fine - but boy oh boy I think today's white on white is actually even more scary and definitely more difficult that the dreaded acetate.  My heart sank and I nearly wimped out, but my husband told me to just think outside the box and have a go.

I'm glad I did - cos I don't think this will be my only entry this week - I have another one "drying" as I type....



I started with a 5" square and I cut the frame on my cricut on pearl white using my favourite cartridge "cindy loo" cut to 4.75" to fit the card.  I ran the frame through a dotty embossing folder on my big kick and added 4 white dotty craft candy dots.  I originally stamped the "love" heart direct to the card in white and embossed it with white tinsel, but it really didn't show up, so I hope doing it in black counts as "outline" as per the rules of this weeks challenge - I did TRY to be totally white Miss honest!  I don't remember where I got the stamp its part of a set (the other heart is smaller and the love is in relief) as I've had them for years.  It's my friends anniversary later this month so I think this may well be their card (good job they don't read my blog!!!)

As well as entering this into Less is More, I'm also going to make this one a second entry into CASual Friday's new challenge as this one is definately focussed on "text" which is their theme.  Fellow LIMettes should check out their challenge if you haven't already - I think it might be almost as much fun as our weekly LIM fix ;-)   Mix your text with some pattern and then you can enter my challenge too......

Happy crafting - see you later with my second entry - and now I'm inspired and less scared of white, maybe even a third!
