I'm back with I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 33

A new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers started yesterday. I'm a day late with my card as we haven't long got back from Manchester after attending my FIL's funeral. It went really well, and hubby even got up to say a few words during the service. He did brilliantly, especially in front of so many people.
The last 4 months have been so hard with losing my mum, and hubby losing his dad, but I'm going to try and get back into a routine now. They'll always be in my thoughts, but as 'they' say life must go on, especially for the kids.

Onto this week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers now. It's Challenge 33 and the theme is 'White on White'. Our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop with the prize being a $10 certificate to spend in their online store, where you'll find so many fab images. The DT have all been given digis to work with from Digi Doodle Shop. I chose The Perfect Tree which I coloured with Promarkers, then cut out with an oval Nestie, then layered onto white Glitter card cut with a scalloped oval Nestie. I also added some Polar White Flowersoft for snow.

I decided to make an easel card. I've embossed all the white background card with a Christmas Cuttlebug embossing folder, and added some white Glitter card, punched with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch. The trees are more Glitter card cut with Cuttlebug dies. I've added a sentiment into one of them. The snowflake is also Glitter card cut with Snowflakes 2 Nesties, with a pearl brad. Lastly, I've added some gorgeous white lace from Wild Orchid Crafts to both parts of the card.

I'm entering my easel card into these challenges:

Stamp Something - September Digi Day Challenge
Polka Doodles Challenge 37 - Easel Card (can enter card into up to 9 other challenges)
