Everything is All White!

EEK!!   White on White, is the LIM challenge this week, no colour allowed!
My first thought was to sit this one out, but I'm no quitter.. lol***
So here's my effort...


I wanted to add some texture to the card, but I don't have any embossing things, so I scoured my craft room and came across some white felt. After a couple of goes, it went through my Big Shot, with a nestie die and I stitched it in place.
I used a simple white bloom, with a white gem in the centre and the stem was cut down from a Martha Stewart punch (leaves & branch).

This challenge is also testing my photography skills (or lack of them) and, like last week (thanks for noticing Mandi xxx) I have tried using a coloured background  - just to make the white card stand out more. It's not ideal, but it is a little better, I think!


Thanks again to all you Limettes who leave messages and hints and tips on how I can improve - I appreciate every one of them.   xxx
