Saturday Spotlight challenge

This week's Saturday Spotlight challenge wants you to design a birthday card using your own birthstone colour, as my birthday is in April (yes folks 2 weeks today!) my birthstone is a Diamond or White Topaz so I made a white card. I've never made a card in all one colour before and it was a bit of a challenge (!) for me but I'm quite pleased with the result. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the central panel, wrapped some black cord around the page and tied it in a bow, I made a flower using different sized punches, a Prima flower and half pearl for the middle. I covered the flower in Stickles to make it sparkle, added some small Prima flowers, 3 dewdrops and a pearl hat pin which I found in an old jewellery box. Finally I stamped the sentiment on a small piece of card, doodled round the edge and hey presto a card is made!
The half pearl and the sentiment are both from Stampin Up.

I'm also entering the card for the challenges at:
Stamp Simply #131 - CAS Texture
Die Cut Dreams - Pack a Punch
