White on White ...

Poinsettias received their name in the United States in honor of Joel Roberts Poinsett, who introduced the plant into the country in 1828. Poinsett was a botanist, physician and the first United States Ambassador to Mexico. He sent cuttings of the plant he had discovered in Southern Mexico to his home in Charleston, South Carolina. The word Poinsettia is traditionally capitalized because it is named after a person.

Good morning ... today is the start of a new color challenge at The Outlawz. This is my week to post and our challenge this week is White on white with one neutral (black, brown, kraft) and one color of choice. The project must be mostly white with just touches of the allowed colors.

I chose the white on white because I love the look of  projects made with them. It doesn't matter if it has minimal elements or lots of layers, they always looks elegant and tidy. However, I struggle with them when trying to make them myself as I always want to add color somewhere! So baby steps right?

Here is my 5 x 7 card!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head over to the Outlawz where a new challenge starts every day of the week! (Hugs) Cara
