Because I Care, Free For All, and a Queen!

Congratulations, Fran! WooHoo! Totally deserving to be SCS Queen for the Day(QFTD20)! Here is the card of Fran's I chose to CASE!

I added a double row of ribbon to my card and a ticket punch sentiment. I also combined this challenge with today's SCS Free For All(F4A23)! I added a border edge below to the center panel for my side-swipe detail! Thanks, Bev for a fun challenge!

For my card, I inked the leaves of the flower only in always artichoke.  I stamped off once.  I then inked the whole flower in Palette pink toile and sort of rocked and rolled with hibiscus burst.  I then stamped the whole flower onto the Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  Stamping off the artichoke first gave me a softer artichoke color in the leaves that does not overpower the soft pink hues.  I softly sponged the white focal image and crumb cake cardstocks with Memento Sand inks.
