Hello and welcome to my blog everyone! I am so pleased to have made this card for Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown challenge. I love cards that are white on white with a pop of color and this card is no exception.

The stamp is a new one for me from Heartfelt Creations and this has turned out to be a very versatile stamp set and one of my favorites. It is the Hydrangea/Posy Branch set. I have noticed there are several companies that are making stamps that are compatible with Spellbinders dies and Heartfelt Creations is one of them which I think is "a good thing" as Martha would say. The paper is White and Vibrant Violet Pure Luxury cardstock from Gina K. I did the coloring with Copic markers and used a Cuttlebug embossing plate for the background. The die cut is Spellbinders and the sentiment is Stampin' Up (I don't know what set it is from as I purchased it as an individual stamp from eBay for less than a dollar, but it is from 1992.) The ink is also from SU and is called Lavender Lace; the pearls on the sentiment are from my stash.

Hope you all enjoy the card as much as I enjoyed making it! Feel free to leave me a comment if you like the card! Blessings,
