Today's QFTD is to select a queen from the letters E-I.
I chose Sallie, a/k/a hobbydujour. I am a big Sallie fan, but in no way could I ever case one of her beautiful backgrounds...yet...'cause I'm on my way to purchase a gelli plate! So, I chose this card so as not to embarrass Sallie! I thought I had cork that would work, but it was too thick...then, I remembered I had a sheet of "cork" in my scrapbook paper stash!
I added the Cuttlebug diamonds for the F4A challenge to "show us your diamonds". I also changed sentiments and colors.
I'm sure you're gonna be cased a lot today, Sallie. Hope you approve of my card honoring your reign!

Vicky, this is GORGEOUS!! I am touched that you selected one of my cards to CASE....and I like what you have done with it immensely. The cork DP is so much easier to work with and your die cuts accented with the gray pearls are beautiful. Love the font of of your message....looks handwritten. Thanks so much.

Vicky, in my honest opinion, you nailed Sallie's card! Why wouldn't she approve? Love the embossed bg and the sentiment too! Your bling looks great and good for you remembering you had cork dp to finish this off~
