All White Challenge at Double D

Today at Double D Challenges Team Darlene is hosting
and the theme is an ALL WHITE challenge
using the gorgeous mood board below for inspiration!

I love these mood boards and I love these challenges as sometimes
they put me a bit out of my comfort zone,
which is what a challenge is all about...right?

I knew right away the creation I was going to make for this challenge though.
Several years ago I had purchased a Christening Dress die from Cottage Cutz
and absolutely love the sweetness of it.
Plus the fact that this summer I am expecting my 4th great grandchild (a girl)
and will be needing a card for her christening.
(I know, you don't have to mention it, I am waaaay too young to be a great-grandma...LOL)

I used a Spellbinders Labels Four die to cut an opening in my card stock.
Once cut out, I embossed with a Sizzix EB folder.
I computer generated the sentiment, one I love,
and placed under the opening (window).
Then I added my christening gown and bonnet,
a few CLD Leaf Flourishes and branches from the CLD Wreath Strip dies.
These are two of my 'go to' dies most of the time, I just love them!
Three little white Roses were then added!

So, make sure and visit (and join in with us) the Double D
and see all the gorgeous, gorgeous creations from the Double D girls!!

Ha! I have a few friends who are great-grandmothers. Of course, they're all WAY older than me! In your decrepit elder years you just get better and better with your card making skills, though, 'cause this is gorgeous! Love the embossed background with the foliage twining along the die cut opening, and the Christening gown is pure sweetness. What a perfect choice for white on white!
