You All White?

Don't the weekends fly by,sometimes I wish I was a lady of leisure,I wonder if I would ever get fed up with being able to craft more often?........ I think not!
Anyway,after seeing the white cards popping up on several of the blogs that I follow I thought why not give it a go! I so loved making this card,it put pay to my biggest problem when it comes to making cards,choosing what papers to use,I'm the worlds worst at making decisions of any kind. I ended up using both matt and pearlescent card stock,the pearlescent appears almost winter white. I just broke out the embossing folders and went for it, adding a small amount of white luster rub on to the embossed flower layer.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Less Is More 14,White on white,
CCH66,Anything goes,
MIM36,Anything goes,
Tres Chic,
Dream Valley 6,Flowers,
Scrappy Frogs,Anything goes,
Catch The Bug May,Anything goes,
C4C86,Lots of flowers,
Secret Crafter 133,Dust off your stash (luster)
Phindy's Place 54,Embossing,
Thanks for stopping by,
