Wintry WOW !

My first post in this new year 2014...

Have done 3 White on white cards earlier and this one is so apt for the season :)
Done this card with just Cherry Lynn Designs Dies only :)

As the day is so gloomy today, unable to capture a proper pic :(

The White CS is used as card front on which snowflakes are heat embossed with White Ep. And the central focal point is a strip of White Thai natural fiber paper is added to give a wintry feel and to both ends added a strips of punched MS deco shell laces.

The central foliage is made from Cherrylynn Tropical florish, Cherry lynn Olive branches to it added five petal mini flowers from Cherry  lynn Embellishments B256. The two white flaky flowers are made using stamens of various sizes from the same CL Embellishment B256 dies.

Just love the Sunflower die and have used in many of my earlier projects here, here, here and here . Its one die which i very often attempt to give variation to the flowers. Hope you all like it!!!
Here the big flower is filled with pearls and few pearls of various sizes are used to create a bit interest.

And for the centre, sentiment is heat embossed using Zing Silver Embossing powder on a vellum. Its my first attempt using Vellum, Thai natural fiber paper and few other dies. Just loved using the fibre paper and for its lovely texture, going to use it often. And the butterfly is added and its a diecut from Cherry Lynn small exotic butterfly die.

Hope you like it!
