White Orchids

Greetings and thank you all for stopping by.  I don't make a lot of all white cards because I have a really hard time getting the picture to turn out.

The other night the neighborhood black bear decided to pay us a visit, I have a really nice Squirrel Buster feeder hanging right next to the house mounted under the roof.  Well for some reason I couldn't sleep and got up and I am standing in the kitchen looking out the window.  I am thinking to myself I don't see the bird feeder.  So I look out the dining window and there is a huge male black bear looking right at me.  I start banging on the window he just continues to look at me, so I start shouting and banging and finally he runs off.  Now I have to open the sliding door and walk out there to pick up the feeder which in on the ground and the lid is off.  I am thinking to myself the entire time I sure hope that bear is really gone.  That is twice now that he has knocked it to the ground so now I have to bring it into the house every night.

Really simple design, I added mounting tape under the three Orchids and behind the first frame to add a little dimension.  Then just used two of the Matting Basics behind the first one.

Memory Box - Twisty Stalk
Mounting Tape
My Favorite Things - Lily
Spellbinders - 5 x 7 Matting Basics B


  1. OMGOSH about the bear, Diane. That is kind of frightening to have them that close to the house.
    I actually love the all white card. I think it is very elegant looking.
    Have a great weekend- xo Diana

  2. This is so elegant Diane! I love the white on white and the orchids are beautiful.

  3. YIKES on the bear!!!!!! How scary! I think I could do without a neighborhood bear - maybe a dog or cat would be better. Not sure I'd venture out after dark either!
    I do love your card though. So beautiful with the white on white. Stunning.

  4. OMG Diane, I would have been too frightened to go out bird feeder or not, brave you.
    Your card is beautiful, white on white is striking, lovely floral die, have a great weekend, bear free hopefully, Kate x

  5. Wow! That is quite an experience with the black bear. In a neighbourhood where they worst we have to contend with is noisy cats and barking dogs, I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to frighten off a bear! Beautiful card - because it is all white it's very eye catching. Elizabeth xx
