Late for the Queen


I am late for a very important date. And, that is Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen is Sue aka bensarmom and this is the card I cased. Yes, I know the 'rule of the uneven' but I didn't have room for another ornament so there are only two.

I am happy to get another Christmas card made. You know it will be here before we expect.

My card is using a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. called Greetings of the Season Mini.

The ornaments are EK Success ornament punch and I ran them through Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots and Snowflakes. The border is Martha Stewart Frosty Village edge punch.  The background is also the snowflakes embossing folder.

I colored the pine and cones with Copics.

Entering my card into these challenges:  Papertake Weekly Challenge-Anything Goes

Have a great day. :-)
