Sugar Nellie - WOW

Hi Peeps,

Just a quick post as I wanted to get my very first white on white card loaded.  Don't know if you have heard but Sugar Nellie are running a competition to win a new Grand Calibur.  Woo Hoo.  So here's my attempt at white on white.  I'm not particularly happy with the photo, but then what do you expect at 10pm at night, so I may re-take in daylight tomorrow.

Here's a close up of this gorgeous stamp

EDIT - Here's another picture as I wasn't entirely happy with the first one.

Here's the competition rules.

Your card must be original and posted on your blog along with the banner about the competition, the last round will be public voting so you need your followers to know you have entered.

The PRIZE is a brand new SPELLBINDER Grand Caliber and an offer of a place on the Simply Sassy DT

And for any of the rest of finalist there will be a choice of any 12 SUGAR NELLIE stamps.
