Madera Corners



This is my last card until Monday. It is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, Peggy aka jasonw1. Wow! Does she have a gallery full of beautiful cards. I decided this is the one I wanted to case. I love white on white cards.

 My flower really is white although looking more creamy than it is  and it does have a little bit of color on the leaves.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I can't believe it is supposed to be 54 degrees tomorrow here in my area of AL...and lots of rain. That's what I call an ugly May weekend. What is going on with the weather???????? Maybe there will be a miracle and it will change.

Recipe:
Stamps-Inspired by Stamping/Cute Circles set (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Memory Box madera corner die, Martha Stewart eyelet lace punch around the page, Martha Stewart fir punch, Inspired by Stamping white curly flowers

I thought I would enter a second card into The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge-Free for All (Limit 3)
I think my card will also fit the challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog challenge, too--Happy Mail

Gorgeous card, Brenda! Love all the white and the diecuts! Very elegant! Can you believe this weather? Good grief! Maybe you should come down to Birmingham and go to the CKC Scrapbook show! I hear it's the first time it's been held in Birmingham. I'm going to check it out tomorrow. I was at The Scrapbook Princess in Moody today and she heard from customers that there weren't a lot of vendors? We'll see.

Oh, my! What a lovely card. The white on white looks so elegant and pretty! It certainly would make for the perfect wedding card! And, yes I do believe you are getting some ugly weather there. Sounds like the weather we had here couple weeks ago. We finally turned the corner and are getting higher temps with the 70s. Hope your weather changes for the better soon! Take care, hugs!

So elegant and so amazing, Benzi...love your choice in die cuts and the gorgeous punched border! We are finally having some spring weather...it is absolutely gorgeous...about 72 degrees and sun! We've had such a miserable winter and spring that this is most appreciated :)
