A Simple card was needed .........D

I needed a card for my stepmother so I just had to make one. I have avoided making a card white on white but I felt like making one.  In fact making a card these days is very very rare for me.  I needed to challenge myself and I did just that.  No getting messy and staying clean was a nightmare lol.

I cut out various die cuts by Spellbiders, Memory Box and Cheery Lynn from white card and arranged them on the card front.  

I used 2 small birds from Crafty-Emblies and painted them pink.  The diamante flourish had to be dusted off when taken from my stash - LOL.

That was real easy to talk through in comparison to my usual blurb lol.  Not many pics either ;-))) So here goes.  Thanks for taking the time to drop by and hope you pop back again in the future.

Hugz and love
