Queen for a day

This weekend has been a very eventful one for the nation and particularly for the Royal Family as Prince William married his bride, Catherine. It was truly a very regal occasion and our future queen certainly looked at ease and happy. I'm sure that every bride feels like a 'queen for the day'.

The card is for the sketch on Cards & things 76:

Background paper is We R memory keepers Madame Royale Elisabeth, which is very glittered. The matching journaling paper is also W R MK, as is the rub on with the crown and wording.The lace, gems, pearls and flower are all from stash.

This is also for the following challenges:

  11. Oh Hazel, this is lovely! I like the sentiment for this a lot and the way you've put it together is elegant and very classic. I like lots of bling and feminine touches on my cards so this is RIGHT up my alley.

    I think the new Duchess is wonderfully poised and she looked as serene and beautiful as a bride in love can be, I enjoyed watching it thoroughly and wish them many years of wedded bliss!
