My First WOW!

I have been dying to make a WOW card (white-on-white for those not in the know,) for quite some time.  I do have to admit that I felt a bit scared to make one because though they look simple I had thought they would be really difficult to make.  BUT much to my surprise, it was somewhat easy to make! In one my my yahoo groups, CARDCAMP, we had a Winter Wonderland Swap...perfect for this type of card (right?!) Once I decided on the stamp (Of course, it's Tilda! Isn't she just adorable) it all came together rather quickly!
And of course I couldn't send a naked card, just had to dress up the inside..
Don't you just love those dies!! They are the Memory Box dies from the Winter collection! (If you are like me and just can't live without them, go see Darlene at Dutch PaperCrafts, great prices and great service!!) This card was sent to Australia to my Swap partner, Alex, and since it's summer down under, I threw in a little FSL snowflake to help her feel a little chilly for the day, LOL.
That's it for me today! Off to play some! Got some really cute stamps in and just dying to ink them up!!
