Hello to you all, and I hope that you are all safe and well.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Miriams Crafting Blog.  Monthly Challenge.  MOSTLY WHITE.

Crafting For All Seasons.  Challenge #94.  THINGS WITH WINGS.

Tuesday Throwdown.  Challenge #228.  EMBOSSING.

Crazy Challenge.  Challenge #189.  EMBOSSING.

As You Like It.   FAVOURITE EMBOSSING FOLDER AND WHY. (I love this folder as it gives a beautiful look and lots of fabulous texture. I think this is an all round faVourite of mine, not just for Winter cards - GORGEOUS EFFECT).

I really do like the Challenge of making these WHITE CARDS, and this is another that I have enjoyed creating.
Using a SCALLOPED EDGE CARD I have first added a
to highlight and give definition too.
I then embossed a RECTANGLE PANEL with the CRACKLE EMBOSSING FOLDER and positioned to the right side of the card.
Then I used the Spellbinders TEAR DROP CIRCLE die set, using the largest circle, which I then embossed using the SMALL DAINTY FLOWERS folder., this was placed in the centre.
 I then created my FLOWERS using WHITE CARD and also WHITE HOLOGRAPHIC CARD using the SMALL DAISY PUNCH and also the Spellbinders D-Lites - BLOOMS ONE.
For the centres of the flowers I have used CARD CANDI and also CRYSTAL GEMS. To make the FOLIAGE I used the Die-Namites WINDY WHEAT die, which I then embossed with the
SWISS DOTS embossing folder. Once they were all in position, I added THREE PINS one with SMALL BALL TOP and the other two with LEAF TOP.
I added CRYSTAL GEMS round the TEAR DROP CIRCLE for added texture.
I then punched TWO EMBOSSED BUTTERFLIES using the Woodware BUTTERFLY PUNCH, these were layered together with CRYSTALS for the body. I then used the
MINI BUTTERFLY PUNCH  to create three layered butterflies using HOLOGRAPHIC CARD.
To complete the look, my sentiment says

Thank you so much for coming to visit, you are so kind. I hope that you like my card.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx
