Challenge me White on White

Whose up for a challenge? This week it's white on white over at Card Crafter's Circle.  I've never done a card like this before and I must say that this was a huge challenge for me! Somehow I never realized that there are so many shades of "white".  I love to do new things so here is my first WOW card.
This week we are being sponsored by the wonderful Whoopsi Daisy Stamps.
I've been given this lovely lady at her birdcage to work with.  It's so elegant that I knew that I'd have to add my Victoria flourish embossing folder to the mix and some lovely lace.  I coloured her dress, doing my best to create some lovely folds.  I also blended just a bit of colour onto her back- yes this wasn't a mistake. I once saw this elegant gown with lace that overlapped onto the back of the dress and it just looks exquisite so I tried to give that effect.  I had these sweet lily of the valley silk flowers so I used some stems of them, rolling up three of them to create a mass of blooms to the one side with two stretching out from it.  I purposely left off the sentiment so that it can be for any occasion.
Do come share with us, there are 2 sheets of images from Whoopsi Daisy up for the prize! Do go check out her images, I'm sure you'll want more than will fit on  two sheets!

Jennifer, this is a beautiful card. I really like the addition of the white flower petals at the bottom. Not only do they give the card a nice dimension, but add elegance. Your little image is fab, girl!
