Monochrome Take 2!

Morning all!

I am loving the LIM challenge this week, so much so I decided to make another card, this time one with more white space as there was very limited white space on my last cards.

One of my work colleagues lost her mother recently so I made her a card to let her know I was thinking about her. Not the easiest of cards to make, but I used my new 'Thanks for Caring' set from the SU mini catalogue which I think is just beautiful.

A change of location for my photography for today's card. I used the dark tile backdrop in my kitchen to show off the card better!

and the decorated inside.... this stamp set has a lovely sentiment perfect for use on the inside of the card.


CS: SU Baja Breeze, Whisper White

Stamps: SU Thanks for caring

Tools: Butterfly wings embosslit, Circle Nestabilities, Sponges for distressing,
SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder

Misc: Adhesive Pearls, Blender pen, SU Baja Breeze ink

I used lots of lovely products from the Stampin Up mini catalogue for this card. I am just loving the embossing folders and these adorable Butterflies from the emboslits die.

If you would like to enquire about any of the products I ahve used then just drop me an e-mail.

Thanks for stopping by today, must dash and get myself off to work now!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~

This is gorgeous Victoria and I'm sure it'll be appreciated.

I'm liking your kitchen tiles too ;-)

This is lovely Vicky, even though it has several layers, I guess the embossing could be construed as white space!
Thanks for this second submission.

Gorgeous card, that set is one of my favourites as it makes "sensitive" cards easier to make. Lovely, simple and clean....

The white on white is a good choice for a sympathy card. Love the single butterfly and the sentiment inside. I'm sure it'll give comfort:)
