Sshhhh...my first Christmas card!

I made the TOP 3 at Die Cut Dreams Christmas  Club challenge with this card!!

I have been bullied, pushed and pulled by a lovely group of girls to get my first Christmas card made...only joking lol. Crafty Chris, Keryn and the two Claire's got together to encourage each other to create Christmas cards every fortnight so I decided to join in. Mind you think I am only making it by the skin of my teeth! This fortnight we followed a sketch by the lovely Crafty Chris and this is my take on her card.
Image - Toodles and Binks
Papers - embossed white card
Embellishments - marianne flower die, swirl die, doily, nestie, brad, glitter, border punch
Sentiment - preprinted
Medium - used promarkers and copics
I would like to enter this into
Die Cut Dreams - I'm dreaming of a whilte Christmas
Bah! Humbug - use a doily
Jingle Belles - no red she said
The ABC challenge - N is for neutral

It's fabulous Pinky. Now you know you're going to have to make some more just like this - coz it's not fair that only one person should get this great design.

WOW! you've definitely started off with a *BANG* then! holy moly first one and it's ♥FABULOUS♥! i'm not sure i've ever seen an (almost) all-white card with as much texture and interest and general dynamic-ness (if that's a word, lol?!) as this one! but who needs COLOR if you can do THIS??!, eh?! ♥
