We're All-white

Two posts in a day, no wonder I feel light headed! Here's my card for these challenges:

Allsorts 'All White'
Simon Says Stamps 'Feeling Fruity'
Onestop Craft Challenge 'Texture'

It's defo hard to make a card with no/minimal colour! I wanted a soft pretty look, with lots of textured/embossed card to give depth. You can just make out the paper pricking around the main backing paper, and the next layer got the Tim Holtz brackets die treatment. I was going to go a bit bolder with fruit, but decided to go a bit more subtle inkeeping with theme so used a Pink Petticoat image with glossy accented cherries and strawberries, and snipped tiny pieces of card for the chocolate sprinkles. The plate has been paper pieced and then layered onto a Nellie's die cut doily.

The flower is made by ascending sized scallops scrunched, wet and left to dry so they go crinkly. The edges were inked and secured with a brad.

The rest pretty much speaks for itself! Thanks for reading x
