For Queen Claudia

This is for the Queen for the Day at Splitcoaststampers.  Trish names the queen on Fridays and I usually get to browse the Queen's gallery but don't get a card made until much later....if ever!  Anyway, this week the Queen is Claudia and I wish I had time to CASE many of her cards.  This is the card I chose to work from mainly because I have this beautiful flower and it had been sitting in my "must use before I put it away"  box.

While I was trying to decide which of Claudia's card to CASE, the SCS Color Challenge was posted.   This week's colors are Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink and Primrose Petals.  Dessert is lace.  So I was able to combine both challenges into one card.  I love it when that happens!

The layout is this week's retrosketches #34

The flower was stamped on scraps of white inked with Pretty in Pink. I fit the Stamp-a-majig around the stamp before removing it.  Then I inked the stamp with Primrose Petals, stamped off once, fit in the SAMJ and overstamped the Pretty in Pink.  I used a Blender Pen to blend the colors together.  The flower is fussy cut and layered on another flower done the same way.

I diecut and embossed a lacy border and added a bit of lace that I've had forever.  So I'll take this over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop where we share our snippets.  In this case, I'll be sharing dessert too!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
