Congratulations Francie on your ascent to the throne! I am a few days late but I couldn't let this opportunity pass without honoring your wonderful work and your many kindnesses.
This is a combination of several cards but the theme and layout are from this one. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=87958
I also love the way you use lacy borders so I used that idea from several of your cards.
I got a bit brave and tried out a couple of copics. Beate convinced me at CHA to give them a try! tfl

This is gorgeous coloring with the copics - I did not have such good luck, but still practicing! The image is done so perfectly, then placed on the scalloped layer, the sweet gingham, then the swiss dot EF - love the lacey look across the bottom, accented by the charm!! This will be treasured by the recipient!! TFS

Christine, your coloring looks amazing! You go girl! I had a blast talking to you. And yes, I remember you. You had the fun name tag on with the lady in a dress.
I had so much fun at Chicago meeting everyone! Aren't those markers fun!
Hugs and smiles
