Tuesday, Cards and Car Packing!

Its been a busy day...getting ready for this ubber exciting vacation, trying to make a couple of cards
(my most favorite part!) and packing (ugh).  I was able to catch up with my sweet girlfriends, Debbie, Debra and Gloria...I will miss you girls!  And I talked to my dear momma.  Besides this computer and my craft kit, everything is ready to go. Tomorrow early morning...ROAD TRIP!!!

Question?  Can you make a card in a moving vehicle? I will be in a moving vehicle for 48 hours over the next 10 days, and will be experimenting...stay tuned.

Today's card is one of my absolute favorites that I have made so far.    Never having tried a white on white card before I questioned how this would look.  Then, seeing the sample at beccysplace and some of the entered cards WOW!!!  Gorgeous, elegant, charming, and oh so beautiful.  I knew I at least had to try one of these. So here is my white work of art.

 I started with  a piece of embossed paper for the background, and added a second piece of embossed paper for the cross piece.  I used my Don Juan cricut cartridge for the hearts, and my Holiday Cakes cricut cartridge for the lacy scallops.I added the pearls and ribbon embellishments to give some added elegance to this card.  I hope you enjoy it.  The picture does no justice!
