SGC36, Cardabilities 47 & Trigger Tuesday - Rejoice!

Hope you are having a wonderful Lord's day! Thought I would pop in to share a card I created this week. I wanted something almost entirely white but wasn't sure how it would turn out. So here it is...



the sketch...



And the inspiration photo from Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday - Winter Blossoms... I really like the neutrals in this photo. So I tried to use my favorite neutral (white) with some various textured blossoms too!



And a close up of the card...



This one has several layers and used several dies. I cut a 6.75 x 6.75 white base and then used a Martha Stewart punch around the page set to embellish. I then cut a 5.5 x 12 inch base, scoring at the 6 inch line and adhered to the punched layer. I adhered a slightly smaller layer of white card stock with dimensional foam and then cut another layer at 5.25 x 5.25 scoring with my ScorPal at .25 inch increments. I then placed this layer on upside down. I wanted the panel to resemble beadboard. I then placed this with dimensional foam and spritzed the entire thing with Smooch Spritz (Vanilla Shimmer) and Glimmer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds). I placed a rectangular punched panel on top of this. I used Martha Stewart's large lattice punch for that layer. The final layer consists of a Cheery Lynn Designs Die, Spellbinders Picot Edges and a Standard Circles Large surrounding the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped in black and came from Our Daily Bread's Easter Blessings set. A few pearls, crochet flowers, mulberry roses, pearl brads and paper punched leaves finish it off! Thanks so much for visiting and until next time... Blessings...
