This is for our new Queen-Julia or (Crafty Julia). Her gallery is filled with lots of colorful cards, and I noticed that she always seems to use lots of elements on her cards so I cased this pretty one: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=213724 I stamped the sentiment several times, sponged both colors on the cs & popped it up, added buttons, a bow and mittens with twine. For the mittens, this stamp set only has one so I had to create the opposite mitten. It's accomplished by stamping the image onto a clear (acrylic) piece and then quickly turning it over onto a piece of cardstock. I then colored and cut out. Congratulations, Julia, enjoy your reign as our newest queen!

Really a pretty and festive card, Roberta. I like how your repeat stamped your greeting in multiple colors to be the focal panel. The little mitten accents are so cute and the BG EF gives a textural interest.

I did not know that mitten trick..thanks for the tip...Great card in non traditional colors. I love that rectangle die and it looks wonderful with all the greetings stamped on it..a fitting tribute to Queen Julia.
