Late Post for the Queen

I'm back with another post for today. Last Friday, Lisa Lara was named Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. I'm dragging in late with a card to honor her. She has such a fun an creative gallery and I chose this one to case.

I made my flower with a Spellbinders Blossom Two die and ran my needle and thread up the middle of the ribbon to scrunch it so I would have a stem.  Looking at the card, I wish I had made my stem longer for the large blossom. Anyway, added the sentiment and that's it.

Recipe:
Stamp: Flourishes Sweet Nature
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Melon Mambo
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: studiog printed buttons, Spellbinders Blossom Two die, Stampin'Up! Melon Mambo ribbon
