As some of you already know, I have a very dear friend who lives far far away on the eastern coast of Canada in a magical place called Newfoundland. A few months ago, Michelle invited me to join a Facebook group called “Crop Circles” where mostly Newfoundland scrapbookers meet and share. Natasha Connolly set up this group, and I had the good fortune of meeting her last September as well. If you’re a lucky Mainlander like me, you can manage to squeeze into the group and join in the fun.

There are lots of wonderful challenges at Crop Circles, and Michelle announced an all-white challenge for January. Uh oh! I’ve never designed anything with one colour, and card stock isn’t always my first choice for scrapbooking. I guess you could say I’m a colourful kind of girl.
Here is Michelle’s all-white layout and a link to her blogpost where you will find a tutorial on those beautiful embossed flowers she made…

But I’m up for a challenge and eager to try new ideas, and before the month could end, I promised myself to make something all white.
A layout was daunting, so I decided to make a card, a Valentine card actually….
The doily and heart dies are all Stampin’ Up/Sizzix and the XO is from a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. The ribbon is May Arts and the card stock is Bazzill.
