Lili's Little Fairies - My First DT Card!

Woo hoo and way hay ... today's the day!! Ever since I found out a week ago,  I've been absolutely beside myself with excitement at the prospect of getting down to business as a member of the fabulous Lili's Little Fairies Design Team.... thanks so much ladies for having me :-) 

So here we are .... it's time for a new challenge and for me to flutter my baby fairy wings. (I think it's a bit like a teeny chick learning to fly ... it may flutter nervously, but it has to jump out of  the nest sometime lol!)

Thanks so much to everyone who entered last week's challenge - don't forget to check the challenge blog to see if you have won last week's fab prize :-)

So ... onto this week's challenge which is

White With A Hint ....

Yes, we would we like to see most of your card (apart from the image) in shades of white, with maybe a little hint of colour in one or two accents.

This week's prize for one lucky random winner will be a £10 LotV voucher  supplied by Mummy Fairy - woo hoo!!

I really loved this theme but boy was I nervous ... as they say you only get one chance to make a first impression lol!! All the other ladies have made such totally stunning cards ... but hey I did my best and this is what I have to offer ...

I started off with my white punched square and embossed panel, but decided to take the approach of layering up my punched snowflake square onto a paper with a "hint" of colour, so that the snowflake cut outs would be more clearly visible.I then tied in he pastel colours on my sparkly ribbon and on the angel's dress to the paper - or at least that was my aim! 

It's not tremendously obvious in the pic, but I have used an absolutely startling white, uber pearlescent card ... I used to use this type of card from a local craft shop in the past, but they no longer stocked it and I had never seen any other that was quite as good for Christmas makes. Last week when I was on holiday I drove out to a little craft place I rarely go to, and BINGO!! not only did they have the white card, but also similar extremely pearlescent card in pink and green - yay!

Stamps: LotV "Christmas Angels - Praying" and "Christmas grungy messages";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers (+ glamour dust!);
Paper: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; sparkly ribbon from my stash;
