Flowered Heart Wedding Card - Challenge 131

 I haven't shared for a while as I have been preoccupied in getting prepared for my surgery this Friday.  Plus I have had special orders from 3 markets, and have been working ahead on the sample cards for the design team I am on (Sketch Frenzy Friday).  As well, I participate in a monthly card swap with another group- each swap involves 3 identical full cards.  I have completed the next 2 months, and have one more to do before Thursday (tomorrow).

Now, for some exciting news!  I have received a personal invitation for the Buckhorn Craft Show Thanksgiving weekend.  This is a 3 day, well known, high profile craft show, involving some very talented artists. I was absolutely astonished !  Apparently the coordinator of this event had checked out the cards on my table and decided that I needed to be at the Craft Show - and she would waive the juried process.

This is the second Craft show that I have received an invitation for.  The other one is the Craft and Gourd Show towards the end of September.  This is a 2 day event.  Not only will I be selling cards etc. but they will pay me to teach card making classes on both days. Kits will be prepared for the classes which prospective students will purchase.  The income from both of these events will more than pay for the booth fees.

Now, for today's card share for Challenge 131 - All white cards.

To make this all white card I used various dies, punches and embossing folders. It's rather difficult to see this card because it is monochromatic, so I increased the contrast a bit.

Stamps: None
Inks: None
Papers: Whisper White
Accessories: Framed tulips embossing folder, Perfect polka dot embossing folder, Square lattice embossing folder, White paper daisies in 3 sizes, Boho blossom punch, 5 Petal flower punch, various white buttons, white baker's twine, pearls, 5/8" whisper white taffeta ribbon, smooch spray
