Queen for a day

Having not done any crafting for a couple of weeks, I'm attempting to get back into the groove today ... but I think my mojo might still be on holiday.

Anyway, here is a simple card following the sketch given for Sketches by Carly 57:

It's not surprising that with all the festivities of the Queen's Jubilee at the weekend that there are a number of challenges featuring red, white and blue, crowns etc. I've used Papermania Portobellow Road papers that were free with Docrafts Creativity magazine and a Cool Britannia 'Queen for a day' stamp that came with the latest Quick Cards magazine (I treated myself on holiday ... and also bought some crafting goodies that I might show later) with the lettering coloured in, a few gems added here and there and a birthday banner.

This is also for Tracy's challenge TTC12 - 06 on CBC forum: fit for a queen.

This is also for:
