Love You



I love white and so when I tried to figure out how to incorporate this week's Play Date Cafe colors into my card I ended up with a bunch of paper pierced pieces on my desk and in the end when with the the tiniest amount of color (like the green dot in the flower!).  But I love white on white :)  I'm also taking part in this week's Friends With Flair.  Thanks for looking.

Materials: Unity Living and Loving Life, Unity sentiment, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Ornamental die, PTI cloud dies, Tim Holtz rays embossing folder, Twinery lillac twine, Patterned paper from my stash, white card stock from Ben Franklin
