Color Dare #169 ~ White on White with Black Sentiment

Welcome to a very interesting Color My Heart color dare for this week! The challenge is to use only white and black! There are many ways to do this and I chose to add texture to the white by dry embossing and also using the circle diffuser. The white Shimmer Trim also adds some texture and sparkle! One tip for working with Shimmer Trim: if you need to attach something to the trim use Liquid Glass. I put some Liquid Glass on the back of the bow and set something to weight it down for a while. When I came back to it later it was secure!
