Pure whiteness

I've been wanting to make a card that would be all white (except the image) for a while, but never had enough "courage" to actually go through with this. I knew that the only way I would "force" myself to do this is if there was a "white" challenge for which I *must* create something. So when it was my turn to choose a challenge theme for the new challenge at Crafty ribbons challenge blog, I decided to go with "pure whiteness". I really hope you like my choice and that many of you will come and play with us.

Even thought I have to admit I was sort of "scared" of this challenge at the beginning, I actually loved making this card. And surprisingly it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I'll definitely be making more!

Here's my card ...

I decided to make a Christmas card. I really should stock on these, because I know December will be here very soon. I only used white cardstock and white glittery paper here. I embossed the white cardstock with Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder and Couture creations' Super powder puff embossing folders. The doily and pearls are from my stash. I used Marianne designs snowflake dies and Spellbinders' Labels eight dies. The white satin ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and you can find it here.  The sweet image is from LOTV. I colored it with distress inks and I also added some diamond stickles on the teddy's hat and snow.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
