Less is More Challenge -Week 14

Over at the Less is More Blog this week it's a colour challenge - White on White.... Cool!.. it's not something that I have done myself that often but I love seeing it onother blogs. So I have really enjoyed making these two cards for this weeks submissions.
Here's the first card.
I used the Sizzix chandelier embossing folder running through my cuttlebug straight onto the card but leaving the top part off. It was easy to use my glue pen to add some glamour dust over the embossed parts. I foiled sentiment in satin silver and used my embossing board to add straight lines to match the image. The bow finishes it off. Honestly it was so easy I really recommend this folder to everyone for a quick and glam card.

Here's my second card for the challenge.. it was a bit fiddly and I nearly gave up... but I am a stubbord girl as once I start I have to finish..Lol... so here it is..
I embossed the lines for the 'floor' using my score board, then cut out my snuggle birds and embossed them using the freebie folder with the latest issue of Docrafts Creativity Magazine. I cut out 3 of the Tim Holtz bird cage dies from a thicker white card which looks a different kind of white. I curved 2 of the cages to create dimension and cut away part of the front one to make a door opening... the door was created using the 3rd die. I was going to add flowers but decided to keep it simple so added some flower patterned lace inside the cage with a few butterflies to add movement. I couldn't resist adding some white flat backed pearls where I could... after all it is an Anniversary card Lol
Thank you for visiting this week and many Thanks to Chrissy and Mandi for such inspiring challenges and the chance to see so many bloggers creating such beautiful cards.
