Papertake Weekly GDT - My 20 Minute Card

Hello again everyone I'm completely & truly doolally, I think my tiny little head might possibly go KER-BOOM lol. I am completely getting mixed up with everything..........I got mixed up with my
  Papertake Weekly GDT creation & for some stupid reason thought it had to be done by Thursday.......yep Thicky Vicky strikes again...........so I rushed last night & made a card, so although late, here is my offering for this weeks challenge which is............
SNOW WHITE
So we want to see a predominantly white or feature snow on your creation. I decided to go for lots of white..........not an easy task for me as I struggle with these white cards, mix that with running late. However I actually made this card in 20 minutes, think I'm still recovering lol.............all I remember is PANIC!!!!
I cheated & used one of  the Magic Moonlight photo's, I have loads of these printed out, have done for ages & never got around to using one..........yay for me for using one finally lol.

All the flowers are from WOC, they are White Carnations, White Large Rose & White 15 mm Roses. I also added Stickles to them, which here you can see still wet lol.

The image was printed off onto glossy photo card & I matted onto Spellbinders 'Marvelous Squares' which is gonna be a new fave I think ;0)

I embossed the background with the free A4 embossing folder I got with my Ebosser & added a doily on top, also inked the doily up a wee bit..........think its impossible for me to go totally white lol.

I also added white seam binding down the middle, made a bow & I sewed on 3 silver bells to it. I also added a White Pearl Heart to each corner. It still needs a sentiment yet, not sure which one as it all depends who it is for.
I cant believe I have managed to make a card in 20 minutes, I've never done one in less than an hour, it normally takes more than 20 mins for my brain cells work together as a group!!! 

Pop on over to the Challenge blog to see the GDT's & DT's creations, they are totally WOW STUNNING!!!!!!

Challenges I'm Entering............
Alphabet Challenge - V is for Vintage
Crafty Calender Challenge - White Christmas with Optional Something Metal

Also dont forget my wee candy give away here, there is still time to enter my lovelies.

This is awesome sweetie and I can't believe it only took twenty minutes. It would probably take me that time to get the flowers arranged and they still wouldn't look like yours. Lol!!!
