Stamp Simply -- Mostly White

TGIF! Friday means it's time to Stamp Simply (ssnotime46)! This week's challenge is to create a white on white look with a touch of pastel. If you want the official details... click HERE to travel over to Sharon's blog!

I have a confession to make about this card. It's pretty bad. Since us SS gals post the night before the challenge, it was about 7:30 PM and I hadn't even thought about what I wanted to do for the challenge. I had, but nothing really came to me. Since I have been working a lot, I didn't want to spend the night stamping instead of hanging with my hubby. So, when he said he had to run to the store, I told him I had to get some things done around the house and it might be quicker if he just went on his own. So, I dreamt this card up, made it and photographed it in the time it took him to go to Walmart! Man, am I bad or what? It was less than a half hour. Talk about speed stamping!
Since the challenge was white on white, I knew I wanted to bring some texture to my card with a CB embossing folder. I cut a piece of white 3" by 4-1/4" and that was the lower part of my card. I used a strip of paper pierced pearl paper to break up the top part of the white and the embossed part. On the upper level, I stamped a bunch of tulips from the Stamp Simply Thank You set from Flourishes. I embossed them in white and then colored them in using a Q-tip and chalks. Add some sheer and sheer polka dot pink ribbon, add a pearl to make the ribbon pop-- and you're done!
