Congratulations Kim for being selected Queen for the Day! Your gallery is gorgeous and I really had a tough time picking just one card to case. Finally I chose this beauty http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=114595 . I kept the masculine theme and the deer but changed the colour and the basic sketch. The fancy frame around the deer is the negative of the doily on this card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=30633 and the rest of the materials were hanging around my desk (gotta clean that up one of these days!) LOL The stickers are leftovers and were in bits and pieces so I had to piece them. After I sponged the frame I thought it looked a little bare so I added some faux stitching with my micron pen. The deer are sponged with walnut distress ink. Enjoy your reign Queen Kim and have a Rainbow Day!

WOW, This is stunning! The shading on your scene and die cuts is amazing and brought such dimension to it! Love the sticker remnants and the way you used them too. This is one of those cards that I kept thinking " how'd she do that!" Fantastic!

Do you use a ruler to do your faux stitching? Because on my BEST day mine could not come near to the perfection of your stitching! AND those sponged deer and trees.... now, here is where your artistic talent comes in...(and what I don't have a clue how to achieve)... it is amazing! I love the use of your negative die cut from a previous card. The gold accents are so pretty! GREAT masculine card....
