Queen for the Day-SCS


Another Queen for the Day has been crowned on Splitcoaststampers and it is Mary aka MaryR917.
I cased this card of Mary's...isn't it gorgeous? I didn't do an out of the box technique but I do love hers.

My zinnia image is by Flourishes-Zinnias and the sentiment by Flourishes is Enjoy the Ride.

I colored with Copics, added a Martha Stewart ribbon bow from a punch and used the Martha Stewart punch around the page-eyelet lace. I've pierced the paper which already had the dots on the paper. The embossing folder I used is the only one I have for which I don't have a name.

Paper is BasicGrey fresh squeezed for the strip, double sided unknown paper, Core'dinations sugar cane, and PTI white cs.


That's it for me this weekend. I need a rest for a couple days so I'll see you on Monday with my card for FOSTV.

Hi Brenda! This is lovely, your zinnias look real! I love zinnias but didn't plant any annuals this year.
Sorry for not commenting for so long. Life got in the way, only left me time for peeking, always do as I love all your cards. I especially loved the scene you created for the father's day card.
Hugs

I ADORE zinnias, and don't believe I've ever seen a stamp of one before! Love how you popped up some of the flowers here, and the realistic colors you chose.
