Wee Memories Challenge #68

Happy Saturday!  I am so excited to be posting again today with the DT girls over at Wee Memories!  Our challenge this week is...No patterned paper!  This was is right up my alley!  I don't use it that much anyway!  :)

So here is my "No patterned paper" creation....

IMG_2875_edited-3

I did a little masking with a rectangle Nestie for the text in the background.  I ran that 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock through the Big Shot twice with the Linen impression plate....sorry for those of you who are tired of hearing about that IP....I can't not use it!  Then I attached that to the card base with foam tape.  I added a little banner sentiment with some more foam tape.  Last is that butterfly! I colored the image with 2 shades of Copic markers and cut it out.  I took a black marker and colored the edges so you couldn't see any white showing through.  I think it looks finished this way!  Then I added some black scrappers floss for the antenna and some silver pearls!  I love this white on white look!  So CAS!
