White on White with Delicious Doodles

Morning all, 
Another card from me today. Much preparation had to go into this - and cleaning! My work bench had to be clear of all inks and paints so that I didn't get this one grubby, lol. Grunge and white don't like living in the same area which is why I don't often do all white cards, I suppose. 
White on White 
is the theme over at Delicious Doodles this week with Team A - hence the clear up.

I used three different images from Delicious Doodles to make my first C. card of the year. One down, several more to go.

I used the sketch over at Through the Purple Haze this week for my inspiration 
Different types of white card stock used for each layer, plain for the bottom on which I printed the Christmas Snowflake border, then a hammered white for the embossed layer and linen look for the snowflake and tree's mat.die cuts and finally a pearlised card for the layer with the Swirly Snowflake Tree and Swirly Snowflake Frame. I also heat embossed the raised areas of the dry embossed using pure white EP

Some white ribbon from stash teamed with another die cut - this time from some glossy white (waste packaging that nearly went in the bin. I got four swirls out of it first, three are safely stashed)

 Then loads of tiny gems in the snowflake centres on the tree and card. Finally some crystal stickles on the border's snowflakes. There - nearly all blinged out. 

I'd like to enter my card into the challenge at
Through The Purple Haze - Their Sketch
