Silver & White - Crafting by Designs

Good morning!  I hope you are all doing well.  A few weeks ago I posted one of my cards on the Crafting by Designs website.  I was surprised and delighted to find out that it was Spotlighted on their website and I was asked if I'd like to be a Guest Designer!  Well, of course I would!  So excited.  I was given the choice of a theme to use and I chose Silver and White. Here's my card.  Would you believe - no Copic Markers on this one.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Angel by Elizabeth Bell
  • Sentiment - Whiff of Joy - Christmas Banners
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Whisper White and Metallic Silver
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - 25th and Pine
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Going Gray
  • Accessories - Wild Orchid Crafts - metal corner and white flowers; silver flower from my stash; Doily Die cut; Martha Stewart Fir Branch punch; silver ribbon from my stash; Oriental Trading - nativity charm; Stampin Up silver metallic thread and small label die; Versamark pad and Stampin up silver embossing powder
Make sure you hop on over to the Crafting by Designs challenge page and see what else is going on. You could be asked to be a GD too.  Also check out their Facebook page and follow along. Thanks for stopping by.
