Queen for a Lifetime

this is one of my fave early cards i've made. easy to make, hip, and such an eye candy. i wanted to use the pre-made card stock but found it boring and not challenging to just totally rely on it for the design; i.e. just slap a quote or sticker and it's done (i guess that's the manufacturer's point). so i looked at complimentary colors to frame the bag and shoes. i chose brown and melon colors from the predesigned card base then scalloped the edges of the brown paper, slightly inked the edges of the melon plain card stock, layered them on top of each other, attached bag sticker with the shoes stickers in interesting angles, put on shimmering brads in the melon color family (love it when things match serendipitously!), then put on the sayings!
