I have to admit something to you today for our challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. I totally completed my card and had a wowza of a "duh" moment. I totally used the wrong neutral color and had to start all over again. So I will be showing you two identical cards today. The only difference being one uses "Whisper White" and the other "Very Vanilla". Don't ask me how I messed that one up as the colors shown below were right smack dab in front of my face when I started my card:

I will show you the cards individually first and then if you keep scrolling, I have the both of them side-by-side so you can see the slight variation.

First up, Whisper White:

Followed by Very Vanilla:

Both cards:

I have been using Very Vanilla a lot lately. It's my new favorite white. That may be why I dug it out! I used the new Ovals Collection Framelits for some of my layers. I embossed the Pink Pirouette layer with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder:

If you look closely at my flower in the center, it is a little shiny. I inked my stamp image in VersaMark Ink first followed by Pink Pirouette Ink and stamped my image. I quickly sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder and set with my Heat Tool. Yes, you can do that and with any ink color!
