Heart 2 Heart

Meets Atlantic Hearts
This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is a season of white. I really like to make white on white cards because it is so easy and fun. Just cut all the shapes of the card with white CS and emboss each piece with a different embossing folder. Assemble the pieces according to the pattern and you have a white on white card.
For my pattern I used the sketch below from Atlantic Hearts. Be sure to check out the other creations at Atlantic Heart for the colorful versions. Too fun to pass up.
