All White Sarah Kay

Well, it's definitely that time of year again. I'm leaving home in the morning before it is light enough to take a decent photo of my cards and it is dusk when I get back. This card is the first one I've had to take by electric light. That'll teach me for not completing it at the weekend!
Today is Colour Create challenge day and our fabulously talented Heather has been a real stinker. (ONLY JOKING Heather!!!). Actually, she's chosen one of the most enjoyable challenges that I've had in a long while and this is one of those rare moments where I really like the card I made.
I must admit that when I first saw her suggestion I went as white as the card we were asked to make! But when I plucked up the courage to give it a go I really did enjoy it. It was fantastic not to think about picking papers and patterns that go together. All I had to think about was getting a few different textures on the card. Brill!
Yes, the colours this week are:
with colour on the image. Luckily there is no optional extra to include in this challenge.
The electric light has made the white glitter card look cream, but believe me, it is a pristine white in real life. What a perfect way to show off my favourite Sarah Kay stamp. This is the first time I've inked it up and coloured it. Why? Because I've been after this stamp for a long, long while and it was never in stock when buying my crafty goodies. It finally arrived on my doormat when Paula bought it for my birthday. Thank you so much Paula.

If you look at the amazing cards the rest of the DT have made you'll see how effective an all white card can be. There are some real beauties on the challenge blog for inspiration.
There is another $25 credit voucher from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp! as the prize for the winner of this week's challenge. (Thanks Heidi). I hope you'll all be brave enough to join us; I bet you'll be really pleased with what you make if you do.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
