SweetStamps #115

Happy Tuesday!!
It's Tuesday already!!!! WOW...Time is flying and May is just a few days away.
 So it is time for another challenge wee over at SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is:
White on White + One Other Color

Here is my card sample.
I really love the look of white on white and then when you add another color you can make it fit for any personal/favorite occasion.  So as you can see, my plus one is red.
I used quiet a few Cheery Lynn Designs product on my card today. 
I embossed a strip of textured cardstock with the CDL Wood Grain Embossing plate and matted it back onto the white textured carstock.  The rolled flowers were cut from vellum and the textured cardstock using Memory Box Pinwheel Posie and I applied Stardust glitter glue, which is my FAVORITE!!  I then cut Fanciful Flourishes, Heart to Heart and Mini Pearl French Flair from the same cardstock.
This is the inside of my card using Mr and Mrs stamp, by SweetStamps.   I stamped the image on vellum/parchment paper.  Added a couple of pearls to finish off the inside.
