White Easter Basket

I love cards with a lot of white space. Some people who really inspire me to use more white space are Silke, Charmaine, and Rose Ann. Love their stuff! I sometimes make cards with white space, but I rarely *layer* white over white over white like this.....and I wanted to give it a try. I think it really shows off this beautiful basket image. This is a new set from Flourishes. It's called Signs of Spring and you can get it at Stamper's Dream.



The sketch is today's OCC challenge from Laurie Schmidlin. I love Laurie's work! Just this week, she made a card with a lot of white space for the Stamper's Dream Monthly Challenge. That's where I got the inspiration to use the Swiss Dots folder on the base layer....and in white. You can see her card HERE. Very pretty, huh?!

The main image is up on Dimensionals and so is the scallop oval behind it. The lacey panel with the Happy Easter sentiment is also up on Dimensionals.

Here's the inside of the card. The reason I stamped the daffodil on a separate white panel is to keep the Copic coloring from showing through the back of the card. The panel is also up on Dimensionals.
