All The Best......


Good morning everyone!  Are you ready to get the week started?  I'm getting off to a slow start, but that's OK...I'm an Old Broad and we are allowed!

This morning I want to share with you a card I made that would be very suitable for a wedding card or an anniversary card.  I love this type of card (white on white) but it can be difficult to photograph for me.  It always has  shadows and I can't seem to get that part right, so bear with me.   I will list all supplies used below and my card size is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  I love using the Canson Watercolor paper as it isn't a stark white and it embosses very well and it is very sturdy.  Everything on this card, except the flowers is made using the watercolor paper.  I tinted the edges of the flower and the leaves with some ink to add just a pale touch of color.
Well this about does it for me....today I will be chopping weeds out of the garden.  It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.  Someone always means......me!  I don't mind really as I love being outdoors in the sunshine and fresh air.  It's a good thing!

Supply list:
Canson watercolor paper
Cuttlebug Embossing folder (Textile Texture)
Spellbinders dies
Memento ink
SU ink
Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers
Poppystamps die - Meadow Leaf
