The Cherry Best Polka Dots

My card today is for three challenges -
Over on Split Coast for the Queen for the Day challenge we were to pick a previous queen from the A-B list (SCS names that start with A or B).  I chose Arizona Maine - I love ALL of Angela's creations but but finally chose to Case her You Touched My Heart card. I used cherries instead of hearts and added color to the stampings.

akeptlife is today's Featured Stamper at SCS and I chose to CASE her Cherry Best Card.  And while I LOVE all the bright colors Jeanne always uses on her creations - I used the same stamps but made mine very CAS - with a simple red/green/black color palette - omitting her layers of DP and the bow - just adding a rhinestone to the end of the stem.

I'm also entering this in the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - Polka dots.

We are suffering through another heat wave here in MA - with temps in the 90's and high humidity - that is supposed to continue to at least mid-week.

Today is the 2nd day of my week's vacation - this morning I sweated through church and then stayed in my stamping room working on this card and another creation that I'll post soon.  Poor Kent was out mowing the lawn - but now we are heading out to Target and then to Not Your Average Joe's for supper and then we might head over to Lynn Beach and walk along the ocean after the sun goes down!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Big Berry - Cherries
Paper: white, DP 2009 Itty Bitty dots - PTI
Ink: Ranger Distress Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn, Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: rhinestone from stash, foam dots

Hope that cool walk by the ocean helps with the heat...
We have had a heat wave too...hard to get to sleep at night when it is hot and muggy.

Your card is so bright and cheery!
