Cute Card Thursday - birthstone colours

Hi everyone. Wow, what a day. The kids and I have spent it in the kitchen mostly. When the feeling to bake hits, go with it I say! I'm sure Hubby will be pleased when he gets home from work!

Anyway, my card today is for Cute Card Thrusday's new challenge. This week we have a colour challenge with a twist... you have to use your birthstone colours!

My birthday is in June (actually it's tomorrow, lol) so my birthstone is Pearl.... so white... oh no! I really struggle with all white cards... oh well. I suppose I could have mixed it up and used black and pink pearls as my inspiration too? Hmm....

I've used one of the new Pinkette's from Tickled Pink Stamps who are sponsoring the challenge this week. This is one of the newly released Lil Tom Boyz - Faith. She's so cute! I thought it would be a little ironic to put our little mud pie cutie on an all white card, I just couldn't help myself.


For DP, I've embossed the top layer with a SU embossing folder as much as it would fit on the cardstock, then embossed the bit at the bottom with my Swiss Dots CB embossing folder. Where the two folders met in the middle I covered up with my lace. All of the edges are sponged with DI Old Paper and Star Dust Stickles added to glam it up a bit.

The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts... LOVE them! I received some fantastic news this week from Wild Orchid Crafts as well... I've been selected to join their DT! I was over the moon to have made the cut and can't wait to get started. These gorgeous flowers are Ivory Cherry Blossoms and White Hellebores. I just love Hellebores in winter. My garden is looking a little drab right now and some hellebores under my birch trees would look gorgeous... hmm... a job for the weekend I think!

The sketch I used is from a challenge that is to go up in a few hours time... so I'd better not mention who it is now ;) I'll be back in later to edit my post to let you know where to go if you like it! Its a great little sketch to play with.

We'd love you to play along this week at Cute Card Thursday! I had fun challenging myself to use white, we'd love to see what you come up with!

Have a great day, I'll be back tomorrow with something else to share.
Hugs xx
