Autumn Sunset

Here's a card for this week's Queen for the Day at SCS.  Her name is Joanne but she goes by jojot.  What fun to take a leisurely look at her gallery.  This is the her inspiration card.  Congratulations Joanne! Enjoy your reign!

Here is my card.

I'm also going to take this over to Shopping Our Stash where they're looking for 
Fur or Feathers
No Insects, Spiders or Bees.

The Peach Parfait cardstock and sentiment are both from my stash.

The background was done with the Watercolor Splotches technique.  You can find a tutorial here.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Thanks so much for your visit.  I really enjoy hearing from you and getting by to see what you've been up to.

Oh and Bonnie, thanks for your comment about matching up and it just happened that way, it wasn't planned but I saw it when I posted it. LOL! Funny how that works sometimes. Oh and I see now that you used the Shimmery white card stock. Have a great day. Hugs, Bev
