As much white as possible with Creative Moments

Good day

It is time for another Creative Moment challenge. I had the privilege to play with 2 image of two of our sponsors. This time around we were challenged to used as much white as possible. Personally I just love whit on white cards, though this time around with the images it was a bit of a challenge. 
I did add them to different challenges, so please scroll down.

With the first project I used bits and pieces of my stash with an image called New Hope from Cute as a Button. The sentiment is from Desert Diva. You can browse around, since she had quite a lot to choose from. I added some confetti snowflakes with some glitter. 

Challenges I'm joining with the above creation:
Creative Craft Cottage #113 - Christmas is coming
Unicorn Challenge #38 - Use a sentiment
C.R.A.F.T #489 - Winter
Incy Wincy 5-17 Nov - Christmas

With my second project I played with paper from The Touch of Foil stack and The Twinkle Glints stack from DCWV. I used a Martha Steward leave border punch. A leave die for the corner leaves and some peaarls. Image was coloured with Prisma Colour pencils. Image is from My Besties and is called Christmas of my wishes too...

Challenges I'm joining with the above creation:
The Outlawz Festive Friday 1 November - Christmas
My time to Craft #383 - Sketchy time
The Crafty Addicts #54 - Make it girly

Hope to see you over at Creative Moments too.
