Less is More Challenge - Week 14 - White on White

Good Morning from a very peacful and quiet corner of the Loire. Our neighbours are having a small lake dug out in their newly acquire plot of land, and we've had a very large digger working all week but today its "tranquil".

Well "white on white" very different and I hope I've done it O.K. I used an A6 linen card turned on its side, two pieces of voile white ribbon to give it a bit of depth and a narrow piece of white grossgrain on top. The butterfly is a Marianne die and I cut one and a half just to give the top half a little more interest. Added 3 white pearls and a "get well soon" die cut.

Must away to hold a ladder as my OH has decided to paint the end of our house and its very tall indeed.
