Less is More - White on White

First I must say a very big THANK YOU to all the lovely LIMettes (and you know who you are!) who have left me the most wonderful comments over these last few months!  Ladies... you all ROCK!!!

Now.. on to my card for this week's challenge.  This week at LIM it is a color challenge and clever Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to use white on white.  Oh.. the thought of all that white space just makes me swoon!   As I left some comments for those LIMettes who have already gotten their cards done I pondered what I would do for my card.  I decided almost immediately to do some embossing, but then had to decide on which folder.   My first thought was the SU! Elegant Lines folder... so perfect for white on white embossing.  But then I remembered my neglected Manhattan Flower folder and decided to use it.  I also used the SU!/Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wing.  The sentiment in from the SU! set Vintage Labels.  Some tiny Hero Arts gems finished off the card.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; Stamps:  SU! Vintage Labels; SU! embossing folder & embosslit die; Hero Arts Gems
