White on White

Well, November is whipping right along, isn't it?  I can't believe how long it's been since I posted so today is the day!  This is a card I had published in issue 10 of Whimsy's Inspiration Magazine.  You can purchase the full printed version here or the free online partial version here.  I used the Shape EZ poinsettia for the flowers and since I don't have a cutting machine, I simply used scissors to cut them out, then added some Stardust Stickles.  The Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder was used for the backing paper and then I used the Martha Stewart punch around the page snow flake punch.  The fronds were made with Martha Stewart's Oak Leaf Punch.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Notables 1 set, cut out with the Notables 1 die and stamped with Tim Holtz's Pumice Stone distress ink.
