Christmas and a Card for a Queen

I thought I'd share a quick and easy design for some Chrismtas cards I've been making. For this, I used Spellbinders small scalloped squares and 2 snowflake punches along with some enchanted evening card stock, white embossing powder and a few tiny Geo Sparklers. This design looks great in lots of different colors, and it doesn't require extra postage!
I made this card for the QFTD82 challenge over on SCS where Joan Ervin was chosen for this week's queen. I cased this card from her gallery and made a few subtle changes. I used the SU! fabulous flowers image, stamping with versamark on pink vellum, then I stamped it right on the crumb cake card stock and embossed both with white ep. I layered the vellum over the image on the cardstock, and added a few Kaiser blush pearls. The sentiment is from SU!'s sincere salutations. A little bit of Walmart Ribbon, and this was done!
I may be back a little later with another card if I have time to make one. Take care and enjoy your Sunday!
