White on White...

Hi all, another Bella Challenge; use the colour white, and only white, on any project. I have long wanted to do this, but never had the courage, so when I saw this challenge, I knew right away this was the moment !!!
Yikes, I knew it would be hard, but it was really hard; probably the hardest challenge ever for me, but oh so satisfying !!!
And you know how I love to recycle, so I did and am doing my last entry for the Let's Craft and Create challenge...

I created my background using a recycled cereal box; glued some japanese paper , a bit of paint, and some embossing. Then lace and feathers...

Recycled a poinsettia from a card by fussy cutting, added different size pearls in the middle, popped it up on fabric, recycled an embossed frame from another card ( I am usually happy with the few supplies I have, but I must admit for this project I would have loved an embossing and or cutting machine).
I don't know why there are red spots in my pics ???

Used the reverse of a K and Co. border and applied glitter; added a bit of white paint to my off white flowers...painted the curly cues...

Weaved a strand of pearls through my lace, made a bow, added my button...finished it off with some lace...

And there you have it !!! xoxooxoxox
