WOW! Feliz Navidad Edwin

Today I would like to share my first WOW card; that is White On White. I basically got every whit embellishment that I had and put it on this card..he he he. I did not have any white DP so I have gone the easy route and embossed some of my PTI cardstock. I have layered all of my pieces onto vellum and given them a small tint on the edges with Weathered Wood DI.

For my scene I have used my clubkit Fall 2010. I have done this scene by masking off my images; I tell ya; I am not very fond of the masking; I think I prefer mounting my images on pop dots. But I do see how this is good for when you want to keep your card a bit more flat. Also I have added very pale lines to my ribbon with my Copics(very hard to see in picture) I just wanted to give my card a little extra depth. I have also tucked in a circle sentiment done by Marion; she has so generously made this and other Spanish sentiments....FOR FREE. Thanks Sweets! Check out her blog; she has other FAB freebies in English too. So here is my card....
 Here I was trying to capture the real nice shimmer that I got from spraying the entire card with Tattered Angels mist in Pearl. You can also see I have added one of the crochet flowers my grandma Paulita has done for me. I think it will be very hard to give this card away....
I will be entering my card in the following challenges for they have inspired me to do this card:
PTI Make it Monday: Custom Copic Ribbon
Totally Tilda: Pearls, Swirls, Ribbon, Lace
Simon Says Stamp: All White
DUSU?: Embossing

Til next time!
