Crafty Ann's #48 It'll be all white on the night!

OMG I really struggle with WOW cards so this was a challenge - we want to see white cards with the only colour being on the main image this time over at Crafty Ann's. This is what I came up with:

I've started with a white DL card and tied a white satin ribbon round into a bow. The scalloped nestie is mounted on foam pads. I've printed out the Christmas Garland image from Crafty Ann's digi store and coloured it with promarkers and matted it onto the nestie, I've then layered up the image to give dimension. Card is finished with some snowflakes, gems and a button.

Do pop over to CACB to see my team mates endeavours with WOW, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Ribbon Girl - anything goes
CHNC - anything goes
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - no patterned papers
Divas by Design - Christmas in August
Crafty Sentiments - ribbons and bows
Crafts 4 Eternity - Christmas
