Flourishes Fit Royalty Challenge


Flourishes had a "fit for royalty challenge", to make a card fit for a king or queen! Now, I have to say I need photo taking 101, as I just can't seem to get great photo's, but I live in a log house, and its the worse place for picture taking inside!

For my card I choose a Cuttlebug Crown die I had, it cuts and embosses...I have lots and lots of crown stamps, and die cuts, but this one is a favorite of mine, I think it is from their Disney line!

I cut a circle with my round Spellbinders die, embossed it with a CB EB folder, added some little vintage ruffled eyelet trim around it. The sentiment used is from Unity, it says "You Simply Sparkle".....love it...wouldn't this card be perfect for a young girls birthday??

I struggled with this card all week, not only because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my "crown", but in trying to help a sick animal, I got bit on both hands and arms, bad! It was a stupid thing on my part, and as old as I am I should of known better, hope I learned this time! My right thumb got it the worse, as it almost got bit thru from one side to the other...kind of hard to hold the scissors and tie a bow....I won't elaborate, except to say, it was so stupid, and hurts like you know what! Heck, I even had a hard time using my mouse on my computer.
