Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 73

Morning folks and yes it's Saturday and tonight is Halloween.....lots of spooky goings on...things going bump in the night...witches and warlocks casting their magic spells and all those little trick and treaters making their rounds.....loved all your spooky cards for last week's Halloween challenge.....dripping with loads of orange and black....but I think we are all Halloween-ed out.... ready for a bit of a change could say that we have gone to the other extreme of the colour spectrum....the challenge this week from
Penny Black Saturday is.......

everything on your entry must be WHITE apart from the colouring on your image

no papers this time....just plain old linen cardstock
run through the cuttlebug and given a distressed edge to give a bit of dimension
and a bit of the old ripping and tearing
Image: Penny Black...Christmas Critters
Snowflake: Cuttlebug Die
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards.....Oval Sentiments
Craftwork Cards...Card Candy...Snowballs
Button & Thread from stash
all finished off with a good old dusting of Glamour Dust

I am really beginning to get a bit paranoid about this old dopey mare virus......had a real to do making the card for this challenge....I was a bit apprehensive about White on White to start off but as I layered it was beginning to grow on me......card finished ....all set to take a pic...oh blimey.... shock horror....what are you thinking of girl...the image is definitely not PENNY BLACK.. it's HERO it was start all over again.    I couldn't make it up if I tried..... it's been definitely one of those weeks but not the end of the world....two cards for the price of one for the old Christmas box.     I will share the first card fact....I think I may be able to enter it for another challenge and do you know what.... I have fallen heads over heels with this WHITE ON WHITE look....just my style of card.....who needs patterned paper.....but I must admit I had to constantly stop myself from doing my usual inky edges.......may just make another with inky edges and see what you think.
We have another fabulous prize this week for one lucky winner
