Week #45 - 'White and Bright'

This week's challenge is called 'White and Bright' and I am your host!  I have chosen this lovely picture for inspiration this week ...

... and I'll ask you all to create a card or project using WHITE AND/OR CREAM PLUS ONLY ONE ADDITIONAL COLOR!  (Additionally, you can use neutral colors for shading, inking, stamping, highlighting -- black, brown, kraft).  The Shabby Girls cannot wait to see what you'll create!

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple guidelines (listed on the sidebar) will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

I'm thrilled to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer - Deb Saaranen!  Deb has shared several of her lovely creations with us in the Tea Room over the months and we are always so inspired by her work!  Deb received this Guest Designer invitation for her win during week #37 "Pick a Cause'.
