White on white is always an interesting challenge. Am participating in a fat book exchange with this theme! It took a while for the pieces to fall into place but I am happy with the way it turned out!!
Used the d'vine swirl embossing folder on the pages. Added a flower stamp which I stamped with white pigment ink and embossed with pearl embossing powder. Added a tab with a white brad and tied on some white eyelash fiber. Layered two small silk flowers and added a small button in the middle which I hot glued to the page. These flowers looked very white before I glued them to the white page.
Added a white punched flower to the back to cover the tangs of the brad and added a tag with my credits. I printed the credits on white cardstock and punched them out with the large SU punch. Added a "lace doily" punched shape to the other side to complete the look. Tied them to the tabs with white crochet thread.
Really looking forward to what the others have created with this theme! It is always so interesting to see what others have created!!
Have a great day and be creative!!

Yeah, my son is in the left seat!! He has been promoted to captain of the Navajo!! It is his birthday next week so I combined the two events in this card!!
I cut the "bravo" out of a magazine and added the "zulu" which when combined mean - good job!! I colour printed and added a photo of the plane he is flying!!
It is so great to know he has diligently applied himself to the tasks at hand and to now see him achieve his goal!!!

Cards for my exchanges!

Inked the flowers in several colours of pigment ink and stamped them over a polished stone background then embossed with a combo of pearl/pastel and iridescent ice embossing powders. A very subtle effect which I really liked but it did not show up very well on the scans. Made several so I have a few extra for special occasions later on. Layered the accent on several layers and over a card front which had been stamped with a script background.

Really liked the way these turned out. I so enjoy the versatility of the polished stone backgrounds.
