Creative Card Crew challenge 36

Hello lovely readers!

A very happy Tuesday to everyone!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and is getting along this week.  I've got a bit of a busy week ahead- hubby comes home on Friday after spending the last six weeks in Denmark!!  Yay!  I am very much looking forward to seeing him, as are the kiddos.  I've got a lot of cleaning I need to get done so it doesn't look like all I do is play in the craft room lol

Today starts a new challenge at Creative Card Crew.  The theme this fortnight is White on White and we are being sponsored by Marianne Designs.  White on white always looks so elegant, I love the look but this is the first time I have attempted it. 

All dies are by Cheery Lynn:  Lace Corner Deco set A, Trellis, Oval Doily Stacker, Ivy Strip, and Small Exotic Butterfly set 2.  The Swiss Dots embossing folder behind the oval doily frame is by Cuttlebug.  I used some Tea Dye distress ink around the edges of the bottom layer, then tried to tone it down a bit using some splotches of Gesso and clear Distress Crackle Paint.

I used my Shabby White Fran-tage on the lace part of the butterfly, then placed that on the butterfly wing (which comes with the die set).  I rather like this look.  

The flowers are from Wild Orchard Crafts except for the Calla Lillies which I picked up from Hobby Lobby.

Thank you so very much for stopping by!  I hope you'll check out the other fantastic projects my teamies have come up with and jump on in to join us this fortnight.  

Wishing you a fantastic day!
