Shopping our Stash #83 - All White & Cream

I am so sorry that I'm late - at least I already had a card done up for the team post over at Shopping our Stash. My Tuesday Morning Sketches card is still in my brain. (The rest of the DT rocked it - go look! I'll be joining in as soon as I can.)
The Christmas cold that everyone in our house suffered through has turned into bronchitis for me. I had about 6 hours on the weekend where I felt human, and then BOOM, the bronchitis truck ran me over. *insert sad whine* It's been a few years since I've had it, but it sucks just as much as I remember.
ANYWAY, this week the challenge at Shopping our Stash is to make a project incorporating only tones of white & cream:

This week our challenge is to create a card (project) that is all white or all ivory/cream/vanilla!  You can combine ivory and white if you like, and your image can be colored with skin/hair tones, and of course your ink you stamp with can be colored- but please stick with the theme!

Since I was working ahead (pats self on back) mine is a rather Christmasy card - 

Supplies: acetate doohickey things from Little Yellow Bicycle; corner rounder; Pearl Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels; Tombow glue

As pretty much everyone on the  team will say, it's hard photographing white on white! Give it your best shot :)
This challenge is open until Monday January 7th (my oldest son's birthday!),  and don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!


I'm hoping to catch up on commenting in the next couple of days too - sitting at the computer desk appears to be about as much activity as I'm up for. I'll be back, though :)
xoxo,
Jessi

Bronchitis just as you were starting to feel human -- that's rotten! Take care of yourself and get better soon!
That aside... love this oh-so-elegant card. And you made it elegant with acetate doohickeys! That's extra-impressive. :D
