365 Cards - Day 45 - White Space

Aloha and E Komo Mai (Welcome) to Day 45 of 365 Cards!! Well, when Pam asked us what we wanted to do this week to celebrate the blog hop, I was fine with the three options she posed. However, after receiving the white space sketch for today, I regretted my compliance! UGH! I was totally blocked in coming up with anything creative on my own, so I channeled my inner Amy Tsuruta for this one and did some sewing, used some vinyl letters, and chipboard pieces!
Mahalo Amy!!! 
 Thank You 
Okay, so I was also inspired by Gloria and Rose and their rebellious rumblings, so I flipped the sketch and embossed part of my "white space" (well, it's white so I think it counts!).
Thanks Ladies!

You Rock

The only creative thing I can kinda claim is how I did the inside:
I cut the card front at the top of of the white panel and then glued that to the back of the card. Then I used a stamp and rub-on to finish the inside...pretty simple. Patterned papers, chipboard pieces, rub-on, and vinyl letters are all American Crafts.

Here's a few other challenges for this one:
1. Pixie Challenge - Things with Wings
2. Sew Many Challenges - Let's see some stitching
3. SophistiCat Challenge Blog - So Distressing

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're inspired to give the white space challenges a try this week! Can't wait to see what you do with today's sketch!

Aloha,

This is adorable. White space kind of scares me a little but you managed to do it up right, Pixie Style.

very nice

Fan-tab-you-lousss! But you know, these "white space" challenges do not have to be WHITE. They just have to be empty of embellishment. Or in my case...missing! har de har har.

Oh, and look at your mom, sticking up for you! hee hee
