I hope everyone had a Wonderful Merry Christmas with family and friends.  My mom made me a pecan pie with no crusts or glutens!  It was delicious.  Funny thing is I really do not miss the crust.   Anyway, I received for Christmas some much wanted stamps and dies that I have had on my wishlist for what seems like forever!

I am sharing a card today for PTI monthly Blog Hop!  This month's is all about white on white.  A tad of color can be used, but the focus should be WHITE!  I LOVE color so this one was quite a challenge.  Even the photography was challenging. It is rainy and stormy here today, so I ended up having to get a picture outside in the screen porch.   

I used two techniques I have been enjoying lately.   I love making dimensional backgrounds using die cuts.  Here I used Rosie Posie dies.  While it is a leafy stem, I really think the arrangement lends this element more toward a graphic designed background.   The second technique I used here is  creating a background using a portion of a stamp.  I inked up on the polka dotted portion of the large frame from the Fabulous Frames set.  It is a solid background with polka dots.  I stamped around the edge and in the middle.  Some overlapping occurred, but I love the effect.  I used sweet blush ink.

I stamped the new Limitless Layers heart frames with one of the frames from With All My Heart.  LOVE this set and dies!  Yippee!  I added a couple of white and soft pink buttons and finished with a white seam binding bow.  Kept it simple and sweet, but I totally feel the LOVE!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
