White on White Challenge

Are you having a good Saturday? I am even though it is a wet and stormy Saturday here in Tennessee. Perfect day for sitting down and playing with my Copics and some fun images. The challenge on the Sassy Cheryl challenge site is a white on white theme. You could color your image any way you wanted, but all the papers and embellishments had to be white. I decided to use this image from Sassy Cheryl's called Pride in our Flag and in keeping with the image, I stuck with the patriotic red, white and blue color combo. While I was coloring, I realized I really need  more blue Copics.  That is the color family I have the fewest of for some reason and there are some big gaps in what I do have. Anyway, for my background I used two different Cuttlebug folders, the star one and the one that looks like branches. I had to emboss two separate panels to cover this card and then a cut a piece off of the branch one and flipped it long ways so that it would look like stripes. This was a fun challenge!

My parents are here visiting for the weekend. Since next weekend is Mother's Day we will be celebrating with Mom tonight. We are taking them to dinner and giving her gift to her. Have a great weekend!

Very pretty, I am a big fan of red white and blue together. And yes, I agree that you need to remedy that copic situation and soon! :) I saw a challenge yesterday for red, white and blue cards on Mark's Finest Papers blog, you could cross enter your card in that challenge too, it fits the theme.

I love this card. The white on white is stunning with the bold colors of the girls.

I'm thinking of everyone in TN. I hope you will be dry soon. Take care.
