Wanted to do this for awhile!!!

I have been looking at loads of blogs over the past week or two and have seen a lot of white cards with just one or two colours added to the image!! They looked amazing, so last night I decided to try my hand  at one and WOW!! I just love how it turned out!! So crisp and clean. i'll be definitely making more like this that's for sure!! So I used the sketch from The Outlawz -wednesday sketch Challenge and I pretty much followed it to a T although I used rhinestones instead of buttons. :)

To make the card I used plain white cardstock, cuttlebug embossing folders, rhinestones, brads, flower punch, and coloured the Sarah Kaye image in with watercolour pencils. I also added some kindyglitz just for some sparkle but yet again you can't really see it!!

I entered this card in the following challenges:

* The Outlawz - Wed Sketch Challenge
* Sketches in Thyme - Open challenge #3
* Let's Ink it Up - Anything Goes
* Cooking it up With Katie - Choose a sketch from another current challenge, Add some texture, Finish with a Punch!
* Scrapbook Sisters - Add a little Friend
* Simon Says Stamp - Animal Antics
* Polly Craft Challenge - Black , white and one other colour
* Sugar Creek Hollow - Splash of colour
* Hodge Podge - White on White

Until Next Time... Enjoy!!! xxx
