You're Special, Peggy


Hi everyone.  Today my card is for the "Queen for the Day" challenge at SCS - QFTD163 - Peggy.  Peggy and I have become on-line friends through SCS.  She makes the most beautiful cards and also is so generous with her wonderful comments to a lot of the crafters on the site.  Peggy loves using dies and her collection is second to none.  A lot of her cards are layers and layers of beautiful dies and many are tone-on-tone white or ivory.  She has a unique style ... but every once in a while, she'll make something a little different.  And here's an example with this CAS card that I chose to copy in her honor.  I hope you like my version of your card, Peggy.  Congrats on being chosen Queen for the Day - wear your crown proudly ... you deserve it! :)



Stamps:  Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Ink:  Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Postage Stamp Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Tender Leaves die (Memory Box), Medium Daisy Punch (Punch Bunch), Medium Sun Punch (Punch Bunch), clear stickles, sponges, glue, adhesives and dimensionals

I punched three of the pink daisies, sponged the edges with Regal Rose ink, and shaped them using my tweezers, stylus and mat.  I did the same thing with three of the medium sun punches and then glued them to the center of my daisy.  Clear stickles were added to the center for some bling.

The leaves are two of the largest from the tender leaves die set.  I cut them from Certainly Celery cardstock and sponged the edges with Wild Wasabi for interest.  I glued them together and then glued the rose on top.



Here's a close-up:
