EVERYTHING WONDERFUL {Guest Designer Quirky Crafts}

{GDT Quirky Crafts}

What a surprise when I was a first place Winner for  Quirky Crafts challenge no.13 and got invited by the lovely Cazzy to be a guest designer, once again, for them.. Their current challenge is ALL WHITE except Image. 

I got this beautiful scenery image from IKE's ART which is called SNOW DEER SCENE to play with and you can purchase it over at Stitchy Bearhere

So with no further ado, here is my creation.  All white except image, was a tall order for me, but I thought that folded embellies should do the trick and add some texture to the design. The sentiment is a from Create with TLC.  The cardstock and brads are from my stash.  The pinwheels has been created with scallop square punches and so to the folded squares detail.

So hop on over to QUIRKY CRAFTS and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.
