Living On The Edge...

Our Creative Corner is kicking out yet another inventive challenge for us this week and the idea comes from the brilliant mind of Lili, our very own crafter extraordinaire. There are a few steps to this challenge and here they are. 1) Create a card or project with a decorative EDGE. 2)  Your creation MUST be entirely WHITE. 3) Sentiment can be ANY color you want and lastly, 4) All embellishments MUST be white and if you're using rhinestones, they need to be silver.   So, here is my card of many white layers that includes, white cardstock, white stitching, white graph paper, white crimped cardboard, a white doily rosette, white pearls and a handmade crocheted banner of hearts, white button, white twine and a white shipping tag.
We have had so many wonderful entries lately and the inspiration and inventive creativity never ceases to amaze me, so come join us and try out this wonderful Decorative Edge challenge with a TWIST. We'd love to see it and while you're there, you'll no doubt leave with immense rejuvenation once you see what my clever teammates have crafted at Our Creative Corner.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a very wonderful week!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

Hello Q,
White on White cards can be cool, sterile and bland, but one cannot say this about your creation, it has depth and texture and movement, complex in its design, so therefore it is very pleasing to the sophisticated eye. A wonderful card Q.
