Hello Classy Friends.
Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog
with my newest project.

I have a friend that moved away a few years ago from
Michigan to Arizona, and she was my only "paper crafting"
friend, so I miss our get togethers of fun and laughter!!

I  love the clean, elegant, classy look of white on white cards
and I wanted to "oh and ah" her, so I went with it!!

I started my card with a panel I cut a circle out of using Spellbinders "Heart Circles".
 I like how it gave a pretty tiny scalloped edge around it.  
The actual pretty heart circle I can use on a later project.
Next I used the Darice "Cherry Blossoms" embossing folder  
on a white card stock base, after embossing, I placed my panel on top of my card base
to somewhat "eyeball" where I wanted to stamp my sentiment, 
removed it and stamped the beautiful sentiment 
from JustRite "Poppies Label Twenty Nine".  

Using "Joy Foam Pads Large", I popped up the panel over the sentiment.
To finish my card, I cut a Spellbinders "Ornamental Tags One",
stamped the JustRite word "Friend" from the set "Just The Right Words"....
added "Baby Pearls White"...and my card was finished!!

The entire card took less then ten minutes!!  I hope you have enjoyed today's post.....
and don't forget to join us in our weekly challenges..
we would love to see "your" projects!!
