White on White

I was visiting some friends' blogs recently and just fell in love with this white on white card from my blog buddy, Silke. I was fortunate enough to work with Silke on the Our Daily Bread Designs team. I fell in love with her work and have been a regular visitor to her site ever since.

I didn't completely copy Silke's card. But, I did use the same concepts of flower silhouette images and the white on white. And I added the greeting on an oval as she did the circle. I used an embossed panel behind the main image panel. I changed the colors of my flowers and I simplified it a bit, leaving off the embellishments, but none the less, I LOVE these cards. SO much so that I made a set of four. A couple of these have already been sent as I am working on my RAK list!
I started a new job this week. After looking for a job for several months using the want ads and word of mouth, I finally bit the bullet and contacted an employment agency. In less than a week, I was employed. I really think an employment agency is the way to go! And I really like my job too. I forgot how self-fulfilling working can be.
But, it also limits my stamping and computer time, so blogging posts may be few and far between. I've got some drafts with recent projects though so I'll be around.
Have a great weekend!

Congratulations on the new job!!! and I wanted to thank you for the card you sent me!!! It is beautiful! Seeing this card reminded me that I had yet to thank you properly. I was able to get to the PO earlier this week to pick it up finally as the snow & travel had kept me away for over a week. Thanks again, Angel!! :)
