Magic & Laughter

I don't know about you but I love the look of white on white because it just seems to say classy and elegant.  This card was very simple to make and it was one published in the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine, Issue 11.
A smaller version of the magazine is available free online or the full version is available in print.  For my card, I used a Marianne Creatable die LR0236 and the flowers are from my stash (possibly Prima).  I really like this die... you cut and emboss with it and end up with such a pretty design with very little work.  The digi sentiment is one from Whimsy designer Raindrop Echo and the set is called Smile Sentiments.  I also want to say a quick thank you to Jenny who steered me in the direction to find this 'card holder'.  I had no idea they are Yankee Candle's Illumina Lids so I asked where she got hers and I then went on an Ebay hunt to find one I wanted.
