White On White

Card Patterns     Sketch 123
Our Creative Corner     It's A White Party!

Today was a test. My Mom's first full day home from the nursing home. We've done pretty good. A few things have been tweaked and we may need to tweak a couple of more, I have gotten 2 cards made and posted. We'll be having some PT, OT, and Nurse people in 3 days a week, but I think I will still be able to get into my studio while they are working with Mom. The bathroom remodel is a huge success, YAY, for that. You always hope your theories will work in real time and not just on paper. 
I think you still have a day or two to hop over and participate at these challenges. If I can do it, you can do it.
I used 4 different white papers, 2 of which were already embossed. I finally got to use some of the white crinoline that I got from The Funkie Junkie's Etsy shop. I cut 4 layers of the 3rd and 4th smallest flowers on the Tattered Florals die, kind of scrunched them up and attached with the white button brad. 
Simplicity has been the key word around here today.

Supplies: 5 1/4" square card, Papers: SU-Confetti White, Shimmery White, plain white card stock unknown, Making Memories-Embossed Elegance, Stamp: SU-Define You Life, Ink: CTMH-Grey Flannel, Tim Holtz Alterations die-Tattered Florals, The Paper Studio Spare Parts-white button brad, Fiskars corner rounder, ribbon-Offray, glue dots.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
