Crafting with 'white space'...

I was inspired to make today's card by the new reader challenge over on the
Denise has sent the challenge to use the white space on your card as a primary element....you can check out all the details {HERE}
Denise and the PB DT are showcasing 'white space' cards and there are some stunning cards to inspire!
So this is my interpretation :)
I have used the fab 'You're the Bestest' cat stamp and really enjoyed colouring in this sweet kitty....the image is coloured with promarkers and keeping to the 'white space' theme I have just added a small strip of coordinating yellow dp to set the image off.

I am also entering my card into ~
Penny Black at Allsorts February Challenge - 'Say it with Flowers'
Pear Tree Designs #35 - Free for All

I do love this CAS style although it's quite hard to leave so much white space :) Think of the patterned paper you'd save!!

Thanks for looking xx

Love your beautifully coloured image .. .. and it matches perfectly with your backing paper.

Your little pearls set everything off so well.

I love to see lots of white .. .. but you have to be strong to leave it there don't you? LOL!!!
