White on White & our Weekly Spotlight Top 3

Hi and Good Morning :)  Alison here today.

We had some wonderful Gold & Silver entries in our challenge last week and such creative uses of Cheery Lynn Dies it was really hard to pick just a Top 3 but this week in order of entry we loved seeing:


Congratulations ladies, it was a real pleasure visiting your blogs and seeing such inspirational work!  Please contact us for your Weekly Spotlight Badge to display on your blog.


Now whenever I stumble upon a WoW card in blogland it always takes my breath away, so I was delighted it was our challenge theme this week.  Its a fabulous way to showcase your dies and looks so luxurious even though its quite simple to achieve really effective results.

For my card I started with a 6 x 6 card base and cut the elegant Cathedral Lace Frame and Border Carnivale out of American Crafts cardstock for the background.  I then used the 2nd smallest size Mini Pearl Oval Reflection die for my image backing and embellished the card with small butterflies, Flourish Leaves, layered flowers and pearls.

All dies used on this card are:


I hope you find time to join in this week, you still have plenty of time to enter and I look forward to seeing some gorgeous entries.  Dont forget we have daily inspiration from the rest of the very talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog too!

Have a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today,

Alison - aka 'xtglx'
