Shades of White

When you start working with White it is amazing just how many
shades you can come up with.
I have made a white on white card today for the
Merry Monday Christmas challenge
I am not happy about the photo as there is too much dazzle
from the Aegeon silver embossing
but no time to take any more.

It is a poor effort of photography all round.
I will take a slap over the wrist for that.
It is a sad week this week with the death of my niece
and her funeral to attend.
So my attention has not been on my crafting I'm afraid.
  I am entering this in:
Merry Monday Christmas challenge - White on White
Dies R Us - Christmas in July
Sisters of craft - Anything goes
CHNC - Sentiment
CHNC extra 2 - Anything goes
Completely Christmas - Anything goes

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  1. So, so beautiful Margaret! Yes these shiny papers can make photography difficult (I have the same issue) ... but it certainly doesn't take away from seeing just how beautiful this card is! Well done!

  3. Hi Margaret
    Don't be so hard on yourself. The card is super, its the flash at fault, not you.
    Sad times. Have sadly been there so my thoughts are with you.
    Take care.
