It's Friday...Queen for the Day

This will be my last card until Monday. I just had to do a card for the new queen on Splitcoaststampers. The new queen is Barb aka BarbieP and this is the card I cased. Well, kind of, anyway. I started out the same as her and finally left my paper off at the bottom as it wasn't working
for me.  Then, there were other changes but I think you can see her card as my inspiration.

Thanks to my sis, I'm using a new stamp set today. It includes the flower and butterfly. What a great sis who is always supplying me with wonderful crafting supplies. No, you can't borrow her. LOL

My card also fits the challenge Less is More. This week is a color challenge, blue and green. Hope it is o.k. to use a neutral black as that is the color for my butterfly and sentiment.

The challenge at Moving Along with the Times is Summertime. What says summer better than
butterflies and flowers? :-)

Fabulous Bingo challenge at Simon Says Stamp
As you can see, I chose ribbon, free, and blooms.

Stamps-Inkadinkado/Meadow (from my sis), Flourishes Zinnias (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Old Olive

I'm looking at your card and thinking how pretty that stamp is as it makes a gorgeous statement on this card. I read your post and see your sis gave it to. Now I'm thinking, "Hmm, wonder if Brenda loans out her sis?" Then I read your next sentence and found my answer. LOL. A girl can dream, right? Wonderful card and sister!
