I made this card in honor of our newest Queen Sue. She has a delightful gallery with lots of color. Congratulations, Sue, and enjoy your royal week! Here is the card I cased: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1888928 I kept the same layout but added ribbon. For my bg panels I used 3 different ef's, and for the sentiment (since it's so close to Christmas) I used a snowflake punch in vanilla & for the black, I cut it in half and glued behind to give dimension. I added flowers with faux pearls and popped up the panel. I love this stamp set since it looks like swirling snow.
This card is for my brother who just got married on a cruise ship Sunday. He told the family at the last minute, that's why I didn't have a card ahead of time. Thanks for stopping by today! ~Roberta

I'll bet your brother is a hoot! Someone I would really like (we eloped 49 yrs. ago!). I love your card, with the spectacular black embossing. I never thought of the swirl as snow, but from now on, I'll think of it that way! Nice job, Roberta, and best of luck to your brother and his wife!
