Tall Tulip

I always do the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers and I am here to honor this week's Queen by doing a case of one of her cards....found here. The new queen is Dawn aka TreasureOiler.

I was going to use my Top Note Die as Dawn did but it won't go through my Grand Calibur and I broke my Cuttlebug a while back. I sure wish I could find that smaller size again instead of a wide carriage. No one has them anymore. My Grand Calibur has the wide carriage and I don't need another one. I loved my Cuttlebug.

I am using Stamps by Judith for my image. I love the little coffee bean because there are several ways to use it. I wanted to use it as a tulip this time.  I added a Martha Stewart bow from a punch. I would say this card is very CAS.

Paper is Stampin'Up Cherry Cobbler and the ink SU Cherry Cobbler and  Memento Bamboo Leaves. The green paper came from my local scrapbook store with no name.

Have a fabulous weekend!

This is a great take on Dawn's card, and I'm really surprised that you can no longer buy a Cuttlebug! WOW! I'd be lost without my top note die!
Here's wishing you a really nice weekend!

Be still my CAS heart! What a beautiful tulip and I love the Cherry Cobbler with light green and all that white space. Perfect font for the sentiment too.
