Card For Two Challenges

Good morning!  I'm popping in early today to share the card I made for two challenges.  First, it is my DT card for Card Patterns Sketch #123.  My card is also for this week's challenge on the Our Creative Corner blog - It's A White Party - to use only white in our creation.  I am thrilled to be Guest Designing with the OCCC team again this week!

Here is the Card Patterns sketch:

This week's Card Patterns challenge is being sponsored by BoniBleaux Designs Digis.

Here is my card for both challenges:

I used several shades of white, lots of texture and all white embellishments for my OCCC White Party creation. I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight Ivory and layered with SU Shimmer White.  I embossed a panel of GKD Layering Weight Ivory with the top of a Sizzix Ornate Frames embossing folder.  I cut four small panels of Shimmer White for the bottom and embossed them with the Cuttlebug Jamara embossing folder.  They were all popped up on foam tape. I added some white lace, white wrinkled ribbon and an off-white Kaiser Paper Bloom.  I stamped the heart from Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Heart set (HCPC 3402) with Versamark onto vellum cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I cut out the image and layered the vellum over a cut-out of Shimmer White.  I finished my card with pearl accents made using White Opal Liquid Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Be sure to go check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Card Patterns and Our Creative Corner Design Teams!  Have a wonderful day!

Congrats on being the guest designer again and fantastic job on the challenge!
