White with... paloma

I think I have a reasonably good command of vocabulary; some dear friends and colleagues have also (correctly) accused me of being a "Grammar Nazi", a label I wear unashamedly. However, I have to confess I'd never heard of the colour PALOMA before today. I recognised the word/name as Spanish for dove but it wasn't until I consulted my trusty search engine that I learned it is also a shade of grey or taupe. Who knew? Apparently, the girls at White with 1!!

What a fabulous combination for the December challenge!  This is what I came up with:

I seem to struggle with photographing predominantly white or 'blingy' layouts - this is the best I could do.  Here's a little detail shot of the title, which I die-cut from the middle of the silver doiley!

Becky Higgins Project Life - Jade Collection patterned papers
Silver doiley
MFT Die-namics - Little Letters alphabet dies
Ranger Adirondack Metallics - Silver acrylic paint dabber
Glitz Designs Frosting bling strips
