What a lovely stroll I had in the gallery today, searching out a card to honor our latest Queen, Bridget (bfinlay). And this was no easy job! I looked for an hour, and was so taken with her work! Bridget, your gallery is beautiful, and I was so inspired by many of your cards, and finally chose your Heaven and Nature card, because I love every single inch! I tried to keep your layout, but that big 'ol bow kept me form adding a sentiment. I loved your gold embossing, and bg paper. (I think mine is the same as yours!) Thank you for the encouragement you bring in your comments, and the talent you share. Enjoy your week Queen Bridget! Hugs....

Pat - this is GORGEOUS - it's so sumptious with the gold embossing on the lovely Bazzill textured paper plus the stunning sheer bow! And pearls - well, I'm a little addicted to pearls at the moment, just love using them on cards, so I love the addition of the three pearls especially. Thank you so very much for making a card in honor of my day as Queen and especially for your kind comments - it means a lot coming from such a talented card maker as yourself!

Yikes Patti, mine is right after yours in the Queen's gallery! I had no idea you had used that same card as I, or I, yours! WOW, talk about your sisterhood of spirits huh! I love every inch of your card too, as I am sure Bridget too. I dig that coooooooool ribbon now darling. TFS and for honoring Bridget, it's so special to me, to know that we had the same idea again. hugsxo

Oh my gosh, you are already up and running - and with company to spur you on!! awesome!!
This card is so regally Victorian!! the rich red with the gold embossed tree and that gorgeous DP topped by that "big ol' bow" just blew me away! Fantastic and inspirational take on Bridget's card!!
Bridget - thanks so much for sharing all your gifts with us, as well as your sweet encouragement. You are truly a "Queen"!
