Winter White

Today I had a delightful day of making cards! Here's a quick post to share one that I am particularly pleased with: I think it will make a great anniversary card or wedding card!

This was inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World: I was inspired by all of the appliqued white-on-white flowers and tried to replicate that look with white embossed flowers on white. Here's a closeup of the embossing.
I was also thrilled to find a new sketch to try out at Lucy's Cards (this is the Day 2 sketch from her recent Sketch Week).
Additional challenges:
It's late, so that's all for now. I'm hoping to have more cards to share tomorrow and will have time to chit-chat then!!

Thanks for stopping by!
