Crowning a Queen

A quick post of the card I made for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers.
The new queen is Sylvia aka sillyfilly. I loosely cased this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2103843?&cat=500&ppuser=36184 As you can see, I kept my card very clean and simple.Yikes, that flower is looking brighter than it is in real life.  Maybe it could use a little less brilliance.

Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts-Silhouette Fern, Stampin'Up! Well Scripted
Paper: PTI white cardstock
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: Copics for coloring flower and leaves, McGill Star Lily and Starburst Punches

The brilliance of the flower is just perfect, Benzi! I used to tell Lynn that she did the best CAS cards I'd ever seen, but I'm going to have to include you as a full equal in that now. Your CAS is always so incredible!

Oh Brenda this is Marvelous. I love that fern stamps, gosh it looks as though you've laid a real fern frond on the card. Your flower is stunning.
Sorry I haven't commented for a while but I never miss one of your posts and love all your lovely cards. Thanks for always visiting and for your lovely comments.
Still raining here and it's gotten cold again. They say the sun is supposed to come out tomorrow. If it does I plan to sitting in it as long as possible and recharge my batteries.
