Here's to Queen Benzi!

This week over at SCS the QFTD#57 is Brenda/aka Benzi of Benzistampz! Congratulations my sweet friend, you SO deserve this recognition that's finally coming your way! In case you haven't noticed, that's Benzi's blog candy over there -----> on my sidebar, so be sure and check it out!! She's giving away an awesome prize package you won't want to miss!!!
I chose this card in her gallery that used the large rose from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. I stamped the rose on Pale Plum cardstock 3 times and embossed it with eggplant ep. I hand cut the entire flower and smaller portions of it, and popped each layer up using dimensionals. The DP is SU! Cottage Wall and I used a sentiment from the SNSS Poppies and Greetings set. The sentiment panel was done with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag & a SU large oval punch. I added some tiny pearls and some PTI Spring Moss ribbon, and made the bow using a Bow-easy. It's a bit different and embellished a bit more than Brenda's pretty card, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Enjoy your reign Queen Brenda, and I hope you're having a fabulous Easter weekend too!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your day too!
