White Plus One at Ruby's Rainbow

Hello All,

It's a belated post from me today, for I missed the announcement post about Ruby's Rainbow's latest challenge due to computer malfunction. Well it wasn't actually the computer, but our useless internet provider that wouldn't let me log on, but either way I wasn't here.

Still, better late than never! The newest challenge at Ruby's Rainbow is


For my DT card I chose to use White and Red and here's what I came up with.

I have been eying off the gorgeous cards I see in blogland that have lovely big sentiments as the focus and wanted to try my hand at it. The sentiment and matching die is My Favourite Things (MFT) Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings. I have layered it over one of the MFT Well Worn Labels. The white cardstock was embossed using a Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder.  Ribbon, pearls and paper are from my stash.

I hope you'll join us at Ruby's Rainbow this fortnight. Visit the challenge blog to see what my fabulous (and on time!) teammates came up with and enter your own White Plus One creation.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Text Me
Polka Doodles - Polka dots or Stripes

Tracey, this is a beautiful card! I tend to forget that a sentiment can be the focal point and seeing your gorgeous card was a great reminder of that. I really like what you've designed here, very much!
