Backyard Basics for the Queen

I've been so busy preparing for classes that I've hadn't been able to 
participate in the Queen for the Day challenges at SCS.
I hope I can catch up on those that I missed.

Today I have a card for last week's Queen Lori.
She has a wonderful gallery!
I picked this card to CASE.

Here's mine

The flower stamp was inked with Pear Pizzazz and Elegant Eggplant 
and stamped on a snippet of Whisper White.  
After using the blender pen and a swipe of Wisteria Wonder on a plastic lid 
to color the flower, the design was die cut with the matching die.

I inked the stamp again and stamped several times without re-inking
on the background piece.

I'm looking forward to the irises blooming soon.

Thanks for the visit.

I love the way you did the background and then put the iris in front of it. Beautiful, Bonnie.

Simply lovely. You are a whiz at this ink palette painting. Love the way you highlighted this flower as a cut-out, then used to make the bkgrnd piece. The mesh EF is really effective with this design too. Great card, Miz Bonnie. TFS & Happy wkend.
