Butterfly for the Queen

I'm late for the Queen for the Day challenge for last week at SCS.  Do the days fly by for you like they do here?  Queen Mary has a wonderful gallery and I so enjoyed browsing through it. This is the beautiful card I used for inspiration.



I didn't change much.  There's no vellum on my card, just regular card stock.  Actually I found all the elements for this in my UFO (UnFinished Objects) box.  I'm so glad I had the inspiration to put them together like this.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Papillon Potpourri
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Marker (Daffodil Delight)
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black
Other:  Big Shot, Elegant Lines EF, Designer Frames EF, Ovals Die (retired), Elegant Butterfly Punch

Luke and I were so excited to see that our Spider-Man card was the winner at Seize the Birthday this week.  So I get to fly this banner.


And I won a fabulous stamp set from Alley Way Stamps. 

They have a wonderful CAS sketch there this week.  Check it out.  You know you always need birthday cards.

Gotta run.  Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Congrats on your Spiderman card & its win. (No big surprise...it was such a stunner!). This one is more in my line, it is so quietly lovely. The oval & its embossing is really "queen-like', and gotta chk to see if I have that SU EF. It's beautiful. Really love this card & your b.flies are just the right touch to embellish a marvelous card. TFS & hugs.

Very nice card Bonnie, and even better that all elements are from your UFO box. Love the white with the black and a beautiful way to showcase the butterfly. This is definitely one of my favorite embossing folders. It always makes a beautiful card
