This is to honour our Queen for the week, Susan (susanbri). Susan has a wonderful gallery choc full of beautiful cards, I chose this card because I had never tried the Wrinkle Free Distress technique before and wanted to give it a go - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2309111
I loved the beautiful aqua tone in Susan's card but went for blue & brown so I could put this in this week's Free For All Challenge too. I used this technique for my bg, using Stormy Sky & Tea Dye distress inks. When dry, I stamped my Fabulous Florets stem and flowers. I fussy cut the flowers and sprayed them with glimmer mist, popped them up on the card using dimensionals and added the pearls.
Congratulations, Susan, enjoy your week!!
Thank you for looking!!

Sue, thanks so much for honouring my reign as Queen with a CASE of one of my cards. Good for you for trying the distress technique - one of favourite techniques for making a background. Your card turned out really well and I love the colours you used. Congratulations on having it listed in the Favorites thread!
