My last card as Guest Designer for Karen's Doodles

Aww, How time flies when you're having fun. It only seems 5 minutes ago that Sandy asked me to guest design for Karen's Doodles(US)!
Where DOES the time go. I've had a marvellous time and can't thank Karen's Doodles and Sandy enough for the fun time I've had.
Ah well, all good things must come to an end, so let's get started. 

The theme this week is 'WHITE ON WHITE!

Every element on your card must be white, (except the image).

I chose the adorable image... 'I didn't do it' 'coz it's SO like my fur-baby, Harvey.
He's coloured with Copics and embellished with Nestability and Sizzix (I think), die cuts.
The 'feathers' are punched out birch leaves cut all around to get the effect.
(The technique is actually called 'feathering').
A band of white ribbon completes the picture.

(This card is a particular favourite of mine and I'll be loath to part with it).

Thanks for the ride Karen's Doodles!

Oh Viv this is just BRILLIANT! I do love the white but the best is the image, yes, he must have been modelled on Harvey surely!

The detail of the tiny feathers is perfect, you sure are one very talented lady!

I can't think of anything to say other than it's brilliantly perfect! I love how you made it 3-D with the feathers as if they came out of the pillow. Wonderfully done!
