Have faith, Do Not Despair


Today I bring you another first for me.  Its my first white on white card.  You might think what can be hard about creating a card all in one color.  Well I learned it is a little more challenging in different ways..  The two main issues for me were taking a picture and keeping it cleaned.  But I want you to see the end result.  And I would love if you left a comment to let me know what you think.
