New White on White Themed Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new White on White themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog (please only use color on the image).  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

We have yet to see any real snow here in my neck of the woods in NY.  We had a good coating of ice one day, but that’s it.  No winter wonderland outside my window.  Not complaining though…
I layered the pretty Lattice Frame from Cheery Lynn Designs over white cardstock for some dimension and added a layer of white mulberry paper below that.  I printed my sentiment on the computer and used the Pierced Banner die to cut it out.  The die is dove-tailed on one end, but you can easily dove-tail both ends by cutting half way, stopping and then turn the die and realign the holes and cut the other half.  I cut the snowflake in light blue and white and stacked them.  The center is adorned with a glitter embellishment.  
I finished off my card with a pretty double-loop bow using White Sheer Organza with Satin Center Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.
