Warm Winter Wishes

OMG how difficult was this! I really struggled with the remit of "white on white" and I've got a box of bits which have been discarded in the process of coming up with something half decent - anyway when in doubt make a Christmas card at least it will come in useful!!
I started with white pearlised card which was dry embossed  with a long forgotten brass stencil holly border. I then used versamark to stamp the snow couple and sentiment stamps and embossed with white embossing powder. The card was finished with a white bow and a snowflake button.
Challenges I'm entering:
LIM - white on white
Saturday Challenge - neglected stash
Sparkles Forum - holly or ivy
Fabs big Christmas = pastel colours or embossing
