The Paper Players: White on White & 52CCT

Happy Sunday!

I took some time out of my Sunday afternoon to make a card.  The Paper Players Challenge has an elegant color theme - White on White or Vanilla, plus a neutral or metallic sentiment:

 Over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge, we were asked to choose any past 2013 Challenge.  I chose Theme #1: Christmas Flowers:

My card:

My card literally took about 15 minutes.  I wish all of my cards were that quick to put together!  The card base is Whisper White, with a second layer embossed with the Holly folder.  This folder is one of my favorites for Christmas cards.  I used more Whisper White to die-cut the beautiful poinsettia using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.  The sentiment is from Penny Black Christmas Cheer, and was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia.  I thought it was the perfect sentiment for an all-white Christmas card.  A simple rhinestone in the middle of the poinsettia finishes off the details.

Thanks for stopping by,
