Butter-flyte White

This is probably one of the easiest cards I have ever done.  WHY...because I didn't have to spend oodles of time choosing paper colors!!!  Our Creative Corner issued a challenge to do an ALL WHITE CARD.  Now I thought this would be extremely difficult, but in reality my cricut and cuttlebug did all the work and I just had to decide on what to cut!  I went to a favorite cartridge: Florals Embellished and loved the result.  Hope you do too!




I barely used any supplies, just two different white cardstocks, My Cuttlebug to emboss, my Cricut Cartridge Florals Embellished page 64:  words, shadow and silhouette features.   I finished it off  with 7 small JoLee's rhinestones.  Just couldn't have been easier.  Actually the hardest part was photographing an all white card.  If it wasn't for my Paint Shop Pro 8 program my pictures wouldn't be worth publishing.   This wonderful program helps restore the picture to the colors and clarity that it should be!  Hope you enjoy looking at it, thanks for coming over for a visit! BTW--I am REAL close to 50 followers please help me get over the hump!!! I will love you forever :)  HUGS!

Cindy,
I love how the details stand out because there is no color to distract the eye. I see you are enjoying your cuttlebug:) This butterfly is one of my all time favorite cuts!

Just STUNNING!

Love it to pieces!!! Do you know the name of the embossing folder with the small flowers? I got it with my cuttlebug but have never learned what it is exactly...
