I used a picture frame mat from a LARGE frame and cut them up to size. It was off white and looked terrible against the white circle so I sponged it with distress ink. I will send this to a friend that is having lots of health problems and was in for over 30 years. tfl
I am cheating. I made this two days ago and I am adding today challenge to it. No time to make another one. We are going away for the weekend. tfl

That's a fab diecut, Rita! I know what you mean about card bases sometimes not matching white card. Very occasionally I run to actually using watercolour paper for a full base to make sure it matches an image panel, but usually I find other ways round, just like you did with your sponging.
