something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue!

Today I saw on the challenge from Whimsy stamps that they are doing an all white card ;)  Well I commented on one of my fellow DT from Tammy scrapin corner on her all white or almost all white card that I thought that was soooo hard to do... all white.  

When I got home I still had a page open on one of my internet explorer for a challenge about wedding.  And that got me thinking.  They had a digi that was available and I thought it would be great to create something with it.  So I jumped ;)

And I created something.  I decided to go all white except the little blue ribbon.  I used DWCV paper with sparkles and Divine swirls cuttlebug folder to emboss the white cardboard and get a bit of texture to this totally white card.

I used the freebie image from A day for daisies and left it completely white... yikes... sooooo hard ;)  I used lacey square to cut it out.  I put the sentiment on neenah paper and cut it with grommet tag from spellbinders.  I used a blue ribbon that I purchased at Omer Des Serres a local store for 1.50$ for the entire role!  How fantastic!!!!

I used little white brads to secure the sign.

So this is the old saying with my use!
Something new: the digi
Something old: the paper from my stash
Something borrowed:  The sketch from Catch the bug shown below
Something blue: The ribbon

So this is the sketch I borrowed ;0

So I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Catch the bug blog - sketch
  2. Aud sentiments challenge blog - for bingo (congratulations, embossing, ribbon)
  3. Whimsy inspires - white on white
  4. A day for daisies - wedding - you have my take on the saying above ;)
This is really taking me out of my comfort zone.  I hope that you liked my take on this challenge.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my cards!  And big hello to all my followers ;)
