For the Queen



You know I always have to crown a new Queen from Splitcoaststampers every Friday. This week's queen is Angella Crockett. If you know her, you know she makes the most awesome cards. I cased this card.
I stamped, cut out, and popped on the cage so that it would hang and then I stamped some of the images on the designer paper.

Recipe:
Stamps-Studio 112, Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/Fabulous Dogs (sentiment)
Paper-PTI vintage cream, Stampin'Up! chocolate chip, and rose red, unknown dp
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-K & CO die cut tags, Cheery Lynn Designs Victorian Romance Flourish, Cuttlebug textile embossing folder, Mark Richards gold metal brads, Flower Soft peel off stickers for chain, Martha Stewart bird punch

I think this is it for me this week. Hope you all have a great weekend. I love when you visit my blog.

I love how you stamped one birdcage on the paper and cut and hung the other on that little chain!

Just had to pop by after I saw you comment on Nutzi's blog. I thought of you on Saturday watching that game and felt you pain in every quarter. That was tough!!! They had been doing so good too. But on a happy note...my Gator's won...lol I didn't get to see my game. My boys went hunting and I asked when the game was on and they told me at night. Well I put the TV on about 3 and it was over. Didn't even get to see the exciting ending except in the highlights!!!
Bear Hugs,
Carol

Very nice card - thank you so much for your concern - they just turned on my cable, telephone and computer this morning. Thanks again for your concern!!!

Ah, such beautiful birdcages! And I automatically think of you and birds/cages (Bearzi too, for the cages; she gets 'em real cheap at the Goodwill and does wonderful things with them), so this is so appropriate and very, very pretty.
