Less is More ~ Guest Designer project

I was delighted to have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for this week's Less is More challenge.  The theme for the challenge is 'White Space, but not white', so this is the card I made for the theme.

The embossing folder is an old Sizzix one, which I think has been discontinued.  I punched small white flowers from white card and pushed a ball tool in the centre to make them more 3D and added small lilac pearls in the centre of each one.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:

I also made a second card with White Space, but not white. The sunflower is a Cheery Lynn 'Sunflower' die.  The petals are cut out twice and layered. I added brown pearls to the centres of the flowers of the Poppystamps 'Trudeau Border' die cut to match the centre of the large sunflower.  The sentiment is a Die'sire die cut.

  2. Two perfectly CAS cards there Liz and they are both so beautiful. The white really pops against the purple and I love how you laid yellow behind that border die cut on the sunflower card. It is great to have you as our guest designer this week.
