White and One???

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
Today I'd like to show you another card.   This is for a close friend's birthday.
It's a little different for me because I normally would use more colour but this, basically, is white with a few different shades of green. 
The papers I've used are from Melissa Francis and Kaisercraft.  I have used a distress tool on the edges but I haven't inked them.     The only inking on this card is on the chipboard frame.

The flowers are from Kaisercraft.  I dry brushed the large rose with some white gesso and placed  the cluster on top of a small piece of gauze.  The die-cut is a Die-Namics Fancy Flourish and the leaves were cut with my Silhouette Portrait and I've shaped them a little and then doodled around the edges.

 Here you can see a close-up of the chipboard frame.  This is Make'it'Crafty's Ornate Square Frame and it is lightly coloured with VersaMagic Cloud White and then with VersaColor Laurel Leaf.  
I love this little frame, it is really delicate.  I've had it in my stash for quite a while and I'm really pleased I finally found an opportunity to use it.
The vintage brad is from Creative Charms. 

The die-cut below is  the Honey Bloom Sprig from Memory Box.  Again, I've doodled around the edges for a little more impact.

You can see the layers a bit more clearly here/

For the inside I've used some paper from my stash and added a couple of strips of the Kaisercraft paper to decorate.   The sentiment was printed using Word Art.

There you have it my lovelies.   This card does look a bit pale but, surprisingly, I quite like it,  hope you do too.

A footnote to my last post where I showed the card I made for my first challenge.  Unfortunately it didn't get anywhere and I am a little disappointed but, it was only my first challenge  and I will try again. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do hope you will visit again.

Take care and God Bless.
