All white

There seem to be quite a few white on white challenges right now. For this card I used this week's sketch from Mojo Monday. I had already cut out the cute Christmas bird with my Silhouette some time ago, and this seemed just about the right moment to use it. The background paper comes from a series of large packing sheets I bought at Ikea's a couple of years ago.

Materials used:

Background paper – Ikea
Snow bird – Silhouette design
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Scalloped nestability
Distress ink (Antique linen)
Sentiment – Studio Light
Aleene's true snow (for the hat)
Lace – Marianne Design
Ribbon – recycled (was wrapped around a flower bouquet)
Brad from my stash

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Bah! Humbug! – All white
Mojo Monday – sketch 203
CCAYR – 4/9 (ribbon, inking, textured paper, metal embelishment)
Christmas Card Challenge – week #36 Recycle
Fussy and Fancy – Christmas in July/August
