Winter White card

Hi friends!  I hope you are all staying warm during this arctic blast.  It just blew through Texas and now it is freezing cold here.  Our forecast says it will be 17 degrees tomorrow morning and 13 degrees on Tuesday morning.  BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!  That's too cold for Texas!!!

I checked out the challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog and today's challenge is Winter Whites.  How appropriate is that for today???  :-)  So I used white papers and white ribbons for this card, essentially doing the White on White technique from the Technique Junkies Emboss or Die CD.  The dies I used on my card are all from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut out the following dies:

French Pastry Doily
Francesca border
Holly Lace Flourish
Wheat Heads
Shasta Daisy Strip

I started with a white card base and glued the French Pastry Doily down. Then I glued a strip of the Francesca border die at the bottom of the card (kind of hard to see with all the ribbon, but it's there). Some white satin ribbon was wrapped around the card and I tied additional pieces of ribbon in place for a fun and flirty accent.

I glued the Shasta Daisy flower petals together and added a rhinestone brad to the center, and then I glued this down on top of my ribbon. Then I carefully tucked in the Holly Lace Flourishes and the Wheat Heads here and there until I was satisfied with the arrangement.
