White Christmas

Over at Penny Black Friends they have the theme "total.white-out". I loved that right away, so here is the white card I made.

It seems a lot more colourful in this photo than it really is... I had been wiping a little light blue ink around the mouse and around the snowflake embossed paper. The rest is white with glitter...

Stamp: "Mouse on Present" from Penny Black Transparent Set "Christmas Critters"
Sentiment: WordArt
Ink pad in black and light bue
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, Decorative Chalk from Joy Crafts
Sketch: CRAFT
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Embossing folder snowflakesfrom SIZZIX
Ribbon, glittery snowflake, stickles, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
