Simon Says.......White on White

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Welcome to another challenge at Simon Says Stamp!  This week we have a gorgeous photo collage inspiration that our Joy made up for us, and the challenge is White on White!  The design team is using Cuttlebug products - I know you'll want to play along, too!  Here's Joy's inspiration piece:


My eyes fastened on the whitewashed woods and all the flowers and here's what I came up with this week:

SSS Feb 13 White on White

I started with a piece of paper from My Mind's Eye Bramble Rose pad and built up from there, using my Cuttlebug machine for almost everything else on my card.  First I embossed the trellis design (a cuttlebug embossing folder called Wicker Weave) on a vellum panel and attached that to my white-washed boards background.  Next I die-cut some Sizzix Sizzlits Branch with Leaves and added them.  The roses are My Favorite Things large and mini Rolled Roses.  And to finish, I made a little banner using a sentiment from Hero Arts Friend You're the Best stamp set. 

Heidi has again provided another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of this challenge.  I know you're going to fill the gallery with beauty this week!
