Crowning a New Queen

It's Friday (again already) and, of course, I'm here to crown the new Queen on Splitcoaststampers. Her name is Wendy aka Wendy2512. I'm honoring her by case-ing this card. I really enjoy trying to case other people's cards although I rarely do...usually, just this challenge.

If you know me, you know I love ornaments so when I saw Wendy's ornament card, I knew immediately that was the one I would choose. The only stamping on this card is the sentiment  from a Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company set called Christmas in the Country. I used an ornament punch from EK Success called Ornaments. I picked it up during the Christmas holidays last year at  Jo Ann Stores. The chain hanging my ornaments is a Flower Soft adhesive sticker. The other punches I used are from Martha Stewart-MS fir punch and a MS ribbon bow punch.
