Fit for a Queen



It's Friday again! How the time flies. I've worked in the yard this week and neglected the house. So, I'll try to make a short post and do a little housework. How boring!!

At Splitcoaststampers, the new Queen for the Day is Stacy aka Twinshappy. Here is the card I chose to case. Of course, I made a few changes. I know it is Spring but I'm using mums on my card. I suppose I can hold it until I can use it in the Fall season. I've had this image colored for quite sometime and thought it fit this card really well.

 Hope you all have a great weekend doing whatever you enjoy. I appreciate you coming by my blog.

My card is entered into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-Anything Goes

Gorgeous image and layout! I love how you offset the flowers to the left! Perfectly placed pearls are the perfect touch!

Extremely pretty card. I love the embossing and the dies and the fabulous job you did on the flowers. With our heat wave we're having, I can't stay outside past 7:00AM because of the humidity, but when I come in I have NOT been doing house work either. Our a/c is broken so nothing is getting done. It is suppose to be fixed today, let's hope so of this house will be condemned. LOL Enjoy your weekend.

These mums are beautiful and could maybe pass for zinnias in a pinch! A gorgeous card!

Eine Großartige Karte Benzi. Das geprägte Papier und die Ausstanzung gefallen mir sehr. Auch die wunderschönen Zinien hast Du wunderschön gefärbt.

Viele Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende, Carmen

I literally gasped when I saw this gorgeous creation, Benzi! The coloring and fussy cutting look amazing, and I love all of the texture your punched layers and embossed card base give this. And look at the placement of those pretty pearls!

WOW, Benzi, stunning pop of color on all that white! This is one incredible card. I really wish I could do white on white that well. I keep practicing but so far, haven't been happy with anything I've done. I just need more inspiration from you, I guess. :-D

Liebe Brenda,
trotzdem du wenig Zeit hattest, ist deine Karte sehr schön gemacht.

Ich hoffe, es wird dir richtig übersetzt, lol.
