A right royal birthday

This card is for the sketch on Stampin' for the weekend 10:

 Once again I've used Papermania Portobello papers - I used up some of the pieces from the previous card, so I'm having fun in the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 23 (my first visit for quite some time) and also for Waste not Wednesdays (wishcraft) 22.

The light blue piece of paper is Me to you especially for you stamped with some random crowns with an Anna Griffin stamp. The happy birthday stamp on the middle piece of paper is from the PM Portobello Road urban stamp set.

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