My first challenge for 2013 is Challenge #51 "White as Snow". The background must be white, but we will allow a little color on the image. For those of you who are entering my challenges for the first time the rules are mainly like those of other bloggers. You must follow the theme, no backlinking to previous posts, and you MUST link to the post that has your entry and not to the blog itself. It is too time consuming to have to look and try to find your entry post.
The winner is chosen by the random generator. However, I do something that most bloggers do not do and that is I notify the winner so hopefully there is a "Contact Me" or "Email" on your blog. Once I let you know that you have won, please reply promptly as you have four days to reply. After that I use the random generator again and pick another winner. If the second winner has been notified, the prior one cannot claim the prize. I also post the winner and her entry on my sidebar. I try to do this by the Tuesday after the challenge closes. Now the most important thing is to have fun!
My sponsor for this challenge is Classy Cards and Such.

Now let's see what the Design Team has created.
My card uses two stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. The bird and sentiment are stamped on a Spellbinders die Another die was used for the flower. Other embellishments include leaves and an ornate corner made from Cheery Lynn Designs dies. Also added are a couple of rows of lace and a string of pearls. Pearls were also added to the center of the flower.
This card was also made for Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge "Winter White" and Our Daily Bread Designs' challenge "Anything Goes".
Don't forget to drop by and see my sponsor below as she carries many of the products I used.
SharonMy card uses an image from itKuPiLLi along with white and pink textured papers, die cut lattice window, lace and felt flower. White always looks great and i couldn't resist adding some pink on this card to compliment the image.
I really like to play with just white - it gives you the chance to play with textures and white embellishments. My card is simple with embossing, some ribbon and lace and a touch of bling from my Gelly Roll.
A White Wedding
I layered white pearlescent and white corrugated card on a square blank card. Lace and ribbon mark the middle of the card. The wonderful lacey paper wreath has been cut with a Memory Box die which I embellished with paper flowers and lots of blings. The focal point is a handcut embossed paper heart and adorned with heart blings. The sentiment is stamped and heat-embossed in gold to give it this little extra special feel.
I have used different shades of white for the card, background panel, lace, embossed panel and the bird, which has been glittered with Viva glitter liner. Hope you have all got off to a good start in the new year!
