For the Queen

I made a CAS card today for the QFTD challenge #91. It was this past Friday and I'm finally getting one together and uploaded. I've been busy, busy...haven't we all?

The Queen this week is Christine aka whim6915 and I cased this card of hers. I am using an image from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Buffalo Spring and the sentiment is from the same company and is from the Happy Pansies set.

The card was so easy. I just stamped the image, punched an eyelet lace punch around the page from Martha Stewart and add a few pearls and that finished it.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company-Buffalo Spring and Happy Pansies (sentiment)
Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, PTI vintage cream, The Paper Studio Solid Pearl/Gold dp
Ink: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Martha Stewart patp eyelet lace, pearls

Please don't think I have flipped. I had a shot today-I don't mean and alcoholic one either...lol I meant to put the comment about the lace background on this card. Geez. I love the snowflake background on the previous card. I also love the wheat image on this one. It is very elegant. Hope you know what I mean in all of this..lol

That golden paper is gorgeous! Caught my eye right away, in addition to the neat sentiment. Turns out I have that Happy Pansies set (a recent acquirement) so I can use it too!
