White 'n' Sparkly

Having long admired all the stunning white themed card I see on blogs I decided it was time I had a go myself. Now the idea of no colour is a difficult one for me to get my head round and will definitely need a lot more practice. (I couldn't stop myself adding just a teeny weeny bit of pale colour to highlight the smoke & front of the buildings)

I had originally embossed & glittered the white card intending to use it for the ABC Christmas challenge 'Frosty' but have been really slow and ran out of time. Luckily for me their new challenge is 'Glitz with silver as an optional extra. So out came the silver card & ribbon and I am hoping the glitter counts for the Glitz element! :0)
The ribbon is actually white organza with little silver dots but looks silver as it is layered over a silver card panel. I LOVE this ribbon and so wish I had bought a load more when I could.
Note to self......when I see ribbon I love buy lots!
Anyhow, here is my card which I would like to enter for the following challenges:
The ABC Christmas Challenge ~ Glitz & silver (optional) http://abcchristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/
The Sketch Saturday Challenge ~ 'Cos I followed their sketch
http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/
The Pollycraft Challenge ~ Sparkly things ~ lots of glitter on the embossed panel + silver glitter card & Bazzil bling card.

And finally the Totally Gorjuss Challenge ~ Ribbons.....and I think my ribbon is totally gorjuss!

Phew.......I need to play with colour now!
