A card for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #37 - White on white

Hello all,
I made a card for the White on White Challenge #37 over at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog: HERE

I made an oblong card...8" x 4".  I used the new Cheery Lynn Flower die for my flower and I just love it!  I put the flower together very easily with a sparkly brad and used tons of layers to make it nice and full!  I made it from vellum and it is so beautiful!  I think the photo doesn't do it justice!
I also used the decorative corner die - not sure of the name or die number and I can't find it on the site tonight.  Edited to add:  It is the Victorian Romance Flourish die DL151 - thanks for the info in your comment Kathi! I usually mark the die's number and name on the back of the die in permanent pen but I forgot to do so on this one. Edited to add: (Off to do so right now...)I used two of these corner diecuts arranged towards each other to make the focal point before adding the flower to the center of it.  I distressed the edges of the main panel (for added dimension) and then adhered the entire thing to the white 8x4" card.

Here are some photos:




I  love the simple elegance that you attain with an all white card.  I think it is perfect for this wedding card!  Thanks for taking a look and letting me know what you think!  There are some gorgeous creations this week over on the challenge blog.  I hope you get to go see them!
