White on White

Hi there.

So once again I've waited till the last minute to post my card.  Projects for the Birthday Bash challenge #2 at Beccy's Place is due in today.  The theme is white on white.  This is what I've come up with for the challenge:

For the layout of the card I followed a sketch for the February challenge at The Craft's Meow.

For me, this card was fairly easy to put together since the colour and layout was already chosen for me.  Sometimes I struggle quite a bit to choose colours and layouts for a project.  Since I could only use white, the only thing to do would be to add some texture and heaps of layers.
I used..
Sizzix Dots and Burlap embossing folders on the banners
Spellbinders Label 9 and Fancy framed tags dies for the label topper
Satin ribbon to make the white roses.
A pin tack (for cork boards) to do the piercings.
Scissors for distressing.

This is the first white on white card I've ever made.  I hope you like it.
Thanks for visiting.

Card will be entered into the following challenges:
