Raise the Bar!

It's TGIF!!! and even though it's still really early in the morning, 
get ready to have some fun!!! 

I received an awesome email from Joni from Raise the Bar Challenges 
saying that I was one of their Top 4 and chosen to guest with them this week :) 
Happy Dance!!! 

This week's Raise the Bar Challenge #74 is to create a project using 
"White After Labor Day!" 
Yes, we're breaking the fashion rules :) 
and using ALL white background for our cards!
Of course you can sponge it, add texture, and design anything with it,
but it has to have White DP or papers to showcase!

Here's my card... 

What an awesome challenge! 
It really made me think and go out of my comfort zone and I looove how this card turned out :) 
I embossed and distressed, and just had to add the 3 layers of ribbons! 
I colored Babette with my Copics 
and think I've finally found a combo that I like for black hair! 
So, what do you think?! 

A huuuge thank you to Joni and the DT for letting me play along with them this week!!! 
Be sure to check out the Raise the Bar Blog 
and see what the rest of the DT's amazing White creations :)
