This for our new Queen Susie (Susie Australia)! Her gallery is so awesome with all those trifold cards. Such detail. Not being that talented, I decided to case one of her CAS cards, this one: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=299565. I didn't have any black & white dp, so I used some very old SU dp. The color is River Rock. I then used a pinkish red flower and popped it up. Added a pearl center and my sentiment. How simple and elegant Susie's design is. Congratulations Susie for being chosen Queen this week. Enjoy your reign. And thanks for looking ladies.

Mary-I think it takes just as much talent to coax beauty out of a smaller amount of images etc. and you've done it very well here! Your choice of dp looks fabulous cut into the strips and the dark pink flower really pops against the River Rock.

Mary this is fantastic. I think it would be easier to swim across a crocodile infested river than make a CAS card. I am in absolute awe at the ladies who do this week in week out. Thank you so much for making this Mary, it is beautiful. You are a very special lady, I know you have been sick and still have made so many beautiful cards for HYCCT and this one too!!
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Mary, I love your simply elegant card! It is a beautiful case, and one of my fav colors is River Rock. (Shhhh....CAS scares me to death!) I think it would take me longer to case such a classic design. You know, heavy-hitting cards are sometimes (in my case, Lol) a way to cover up the boo-boos, and boy, do I have those! I applaud your lovely card, and the honor to Susie!
