All white Xmas Card



This was my first attempt at an all white xmas card (the image was the only thing that could have color - and I placed it on red paper just for the photo).  I'm not really crazy about it...

I needed a card for my friend who is having us over soon.  I have several friends who purchased homes this year to get the $8000 tax credit.  The little sign on the wreath says "Home Tweet Home."

I won a challenge at Kaboodle Doodles, and I got a $10 gift certificate to Digital Pencil Too.  I ended up getting several of Mo's adorable images!

Solid Cardstock - The Paper Co
Stamp: Mo's Digital Pencil (it's actually two stamps - the door, and the wreath with birds)
Misc: Computer generated sentiment, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Cuttlebug 5x7 snowflake punch, rhinestones, Walmart plastic snowflakes, Creative Memories corner punch

Challenges:
1. Peachy Keen - Sketch
2. Mo's Digital Challenge - all white except image
3. HFOS - red
