White? Before Memorial Day?

I'm lovin' the new challenge blog at The Shabby Tea Room! This week, Debbie (just up the road in Chapel Hill) challenged us to create using white and/or cream and only one other color. The DT's samples were amazing! Using the Sweet Sunday Sketch, and with the challenge at Something Completely Different in mind, I gave it a try:

Image - Rusty Pickle Digital Images
Paper Piercing Pattern - Fred, She Said
Cuttlebug folder
Martha Stewart punch
Making Memories Flowers
Buttons - Oriental Trading
Ribbon to make the tutu - from my scrap pile

I swear, the buttons match the tutu, but they look orange-y, no matter what I do with the PSE.

SHOESTRING ALERT - The pattern for the paper piercing was a freebie from the Fred, She Said blog!

Thanks so much for these challenges, ladies! They really do push us to try new ideas!

I'm so glad that you stopped by!
