White On White Flower & Button Card

Happy February Everyone! It’s hard to believe that January has come and gone and the month of love and romance is upon us! Spring is also just around the corner – and with that in mind, I present you with today’s card!

The inspiration for this card came from Allison at Charisma Cardz, who issued Challenge #4 this week:  Make White On White Cards.  Now, I know a lot of people find plain old white boring, but I love white – I find it pure, refreshing, and cleansing. So, I chose to bypass the allowance of including a colored image or sentiment and truly dabble with white on white!

To add visual interest and texture to the base of the card, I begun by layering it with embossed cardstock using Cuttlebug’s Traffic Jam Folder. Next, I decided to go bold with flowers. Taking a cue from Cute Card Thursday’s Challenge 97 – Blooming Gorgeous!, I added 3 layers of flowers – the bright middle flower is from Petaloo – the Daisy White flowers are from CTMH.  I then decided to add more pizazz by glittering all of the flower petals using Star Dust Stickles (the photo does not do the glitter justice!)  I also added a button to the flower center and glittered that as well! Glitter, by the way, is the smArt-Word Challenge for February!

I added wide textured rick rack to the card and thought I was done, but after sitting and staring at it for a few days, I wasn’t quite satisfied with the end result.  Then, the other night while blog hopping, I came across a beautiful Valentine card on Caz’s blog – A Load of Old Blogocks. Her card inspired me to add what became the finishing touch – the mini buttons that jazz up the rick rack – and include it in Crafty Angel’s Week 20 Button Challenge, which I discovered through her site! I’m also entering this in A Spoonful of Sugar’s 88th Challenge, Freestyle (anything we like) – which I also found through Caz!
If you decide to give any of these challenges a try, please let me know – I would love to see your creations! And, if you have not already done so, please be sure to stop by my One World One Heart post for a chance to win a very special gift from me!
