White on White butterflies- play with texture

I was making an anniversary card for my parents and came up with this card - all white on white- textures galore. First the base card of whisper white. Another whisper white embossed with perfect polkadots is layered on top. The butterflies are diecut and attached with mulitmono - and same glue used on the big butterflies to add clear microbeads to add even more texture.

The whole thing is then sprayed with vanilla smooch spray to add a beautiful sheen (hard to see here though). Take a 1 3.4 inch strip of another whisper white CS, borderpunch eyelet on one side, pinking hearts on the other.

Pierce the bottom with piercing tool to add even more detail. Added the white ribbon, then tag stamped with sentiment in versamark (for the Newlyweds from the same set also works beautifully! ) emboss with silver EP, then used glue dot to attach the half round pearl from the pretties kit. Texture upon texture upon texture- Sort of over the top but the ideas in it can be used to make lots of simpler cards.....
