An Autumn Queen

How nice to be an Autumn queen ... or any queen for that matter. :-) I am late for the Queen's crowning on Splitcoaststampers, #78. I had something very important to do that day and that  was to go see my son, his wife, and their baby. Wouldn't take anything for that.

My card was cased from the Queen's card. I tried to keep the sketch and it went a little haywire on the top panel as I didn't use an image to fit her sketch on that section.  Tied a bow, made a mum  and it's finished.
