For this week's Queen For The Day challenge, we were to find the Queen that had been named nearest to our birthday! What a fun idea! I just had my birthday, so my Queen is Queen Sue!
This time I selected this VERY pretty card to honor: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2165491
I kept the layout the same, but went for a more gender neutral color palette. I didn't have a background stamp that I thought would work, so instead I used the SU! square lattice embossing folder and added a little chalk over the entire panel leaving some areas a little lighter. Instead of pearls, I used nailheads and I decided to leave the sentiment off.
Sue, love you and love your gallery!!! So happy to have the opportunity to honor another of your fabulous cards!!! Hope you have a healthy and happy 2013!

Kathleen, LOVE this beautiful card - such gorgeous blues!! Your embossed bg looks wonderful as does the floral image which you have coloured so well (love the chalking) and the black nailheads are the perfect finishing touch!! Wishing you a very Happy New Year, hope 2013 is a good year for you :p
