Faceted Snowflake


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for two challenges ... Simon Says "Anything Goes" - I buy from Simon Says quite often - love their on-line store!.  Today's card uses their new Simon Says Faceted Snowflake die ... it's so beautiful and delicate ... and I love how it turned out using the SU! Silver Glimmer paper.

And this card is also for SCS's Queen for the Day (QFTD145 - Happy Birthday to You).  Instead of picking one person to honor, Trish (organizer) decided to list all the Queens For the Day for 2012 (one per week) along with the dates that they were crowned.  The challenge is to honor the Queen for the Day that was crowned closest to your own birthday!  How fun!!  So, my birthday is June 27th and the Queen for the Day on June 28th was Mary Brown (Stampcamper at SCS).  Mary's gallery is full of inspirational cards and I picked this beautiful card to CASE in her honor:

Mary's card




Stamps:  Vintage Labels (SU!)
Paper:  White; Baja Breeze DP (SU!)

Gorgeous card, Loll! Love that snowflake die (hmmm - how many snowflake dies can a person justify owning?) and the shape of the card.
