Flutter By Wednesday - White on White

Today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge is to use white on white - always an elegant look. You are to use only white, except you may color your image. Please be sure to use a butterfly or a fairy on your creations and then link them up to the Flutter By Wednesday blog.

For my card, I started by using an embossing folder for the background. I stamped my butterfly image three times across a piece of cardstock. I mounted the butterfly panel on foam squares. I'm not sure because my stamps are in my other house, but I THINK the butterfly is from Inkadinkado.

Our houses are coming right along. We were SOOOOO fortunate to find an awesome painter. He is painting our entire new house (except for the stamping room, which is already done.) He is also working on our current home. There has never been a ceiling in the downstairs bathroom and the furnace room has been unfinished. He is remedying those situations for us, too. He is amazing, truly, and so very reasonably priced. Our house should be ready to list next week. I'm hoping so, at least.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very pretty card. You do such a wonderful job with white on white cards. Sounds like the new house will have that lived in feeling very soon!

I love how you do white on white! It always looks classy.
I bet you can't wait to be all settled in your new home and have the current house sold!

I need to use that embossing folder. It makes a quick card. I saw your cute card on the FBW site this morning. :)

Oooh Lynette, you are creating again! And in your new stamping room! How exciting is that??? It's awesome just how quickly you've got going again. Of course, you had your priorities absolutely right - blow the rest of the house getting painted, kitchen organised etc. etc. You got your stamping room sorted FIRST lol! Just how it should be. Lovely cards you've made, too.

Thanks for your lovely comment and I'm so glad you like my new album cover. It's turned out better than I could have expected and I'm very pleased with it. It will be such fun filling the album now! I'm surprised just how many I've already done, but people are designing new patterns all the time so the job will never be finished. Suits me!

I'm feeling a lot better today, thank you. It's up and down and not always predictable (i.e. I know what will happen if I overdo things but sometimes I get bad days for no reason at all!) I'm going to a craft show next week and it will probably take me a week to get over it but it will be Worth It.

I could just gasp every time I see one of your CAS cards! You have such a gift! I'm sure it will be nice when you get your other house sold. Should take some of the crunch out of buying a new place. It's so fun to see things shaping up, isn't it?
