Next Challenge Theme--a Clue!

Hello friends!
Are you excited about our next upcoming challenge?
I am popping in with a post and perhaps you can guess the theme of the upcoming challenge from this card.....?

 This Butterfly Trio has been HARD to come by and it is now back on stock.
If you are thinking of getting it, it is TIME to get it over Simon Says Stamp

The positive side of white conveys freshness, cleanliness and simplicity. However, it also projects stark, cold and isolated. For  today's card, I utilized the color white and I also apply as many colors as I can in the design. The result? I think you get the best of the color white.

I started out with white-embossing the largest butterfly from Butterfly Trio (Penny Black). I colored it with Kuretake Watercolors (36).  Then I did the tone on tone stamping with Script Cling Stamp.  (also back in stock).

Here is the close-up of the butterfly.

 In the end, I white-embossed the sentiment and added white splatter. And of course, the white doily provides the perfect backdrop for the butterfly.

White reminds us the the purity of childhood. It is the prettiest color that can coordinate with any color. Do you use white often? I hope this post inspires you to use white more.
And no, the theme is not "All  About White".... good guess though (wink!).
See you on Sept. 1st!

I love the look of the Kuratake on this butterfly!! It bounces off the card!! I also like your added touch of the script stamp at the bottom. Beautiful design.

Gorgeous card! The first thing I would have guessed was white *G* But know I'm thinking embossing?, watercoloring?
Can't wait to see what you have came up with :)

Ooooh, I am so ready for this challenge. White is my go-to...just love it with color as in your amazing card. Had to fly over the SSS to purchase it quick because, once other cardmakers see your card, it will sell out, AGAIN!

AWW now I was going to say White was the next challenge... Maybe Embossing, or winged things? Love this collage style of card Virginia!

Your card is gorgeous Virginia - fresh and cheerful colours, I love using white embossing. Will be back on the 1st to see what you're cooking up

Love the look of the colourful butterfly in combination with the neutral white and kraft. My guess for the next challenge theme would be butterflies or things with wings.

I really have no clue! Watercoloring? Eboss-resist? Rainbow? Things with wings? White? Oh the lovely possibilities! Can't wait!!

Since we've had a glorious season of 'blooming' butterflies this Summer, I'm going to take a guess, AND HOPE that it's BUTTERFLIES? [yours is just spectacular!]
