Happy Anniversary...FTTC172 66

Hi there! It's time for an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along last week :) This week, Amanda is our lovely hostest and she is challenging us all to create a WHITE card/project with LACE and/or PEARLS. 
What a challenge for patterned paper / color loving kind of crafty gal! My dear husband Scott and I will be celebrating our 8th year Wedding Anniversary next week, so I used this challenge to create an elegant but not too frilly card for him :)
I stamped both the sentiment from Flourished Words, which by the way is unfortunately retired and the gorgeous heart from Fanciful Flourishes on a piece of Vellum then heat embossed using fine white embossing powder. Speaking of retired stamp sets, Flourishes will be unveiling their retired list soon, so if there are some sets you want, you will want to stay tuned before you miss out on the opportunity! Once they're gone ~ they're gone! I used a Spellbinders Classic Heart die template to cut the heart shape. Except for the Vellum, the ENTIRE card was made using Flourishes beautiful, heavy weight White Card stock.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with iSpy Sketches:
Here's a photo from our wedding day taken 8 years ago on June 15th on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. We were laughing so hard because Scott has a couple bulging discs in his back from years of playing high school and college football, he nearly dropped me in the water! 
I've NEVER made an ALL white card before so I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge! I hope you ink up your stamps, especially ones from Flourishes and join in the fun! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for complete details and for some fabulous inspiration visit our June Guest Designer: Alice Wertz and the entire DT: HeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateAmanda

The card is beautiful! I absolutely love it and I think you should make more only-white cards.
