If The Crown Fits...




I know that sometimes I can be a royal pain, but if the crown fits...  What can I say?  This card is a fun queenly card using my coveted Waltzingmouse stamps Rescue Remedies Additions and Spellbinders' Nested Crowns that was especially made for week three of the Summer Card Class.   I really enjoyed not having to angst over the colors for this week, as they are largely more earthy and warm and clearly nod to my more comfy vintage leanings.   I wonder how many of the other students in the card class will be up in arms about this color selection?  I bet there will be a fair few, I dare say.   The inspiration behind the crown and the regal sentiment was from all the current royal mania buzzing around Wills and gorgeous Kate.  So when you read the Waltzingmouse sentiment on my card, all of you Ma'ams (pronounced like hams) and fine Sirs, please note it is obligatory to do so with a posh accent.   Thank you. *curtsies*

Jen.......This is so beautiful! I love what you did with the shape of the card and how you got all of the colors to work. I'm loving all of these color challenges.....bright and bold, and muted and earthy.....but, using 5 colors for me is a challenge, anyway. I'm glad you feel more comfortable this week.

What a delightfully amazing card! These colors are so pretty warmed up like you've done here. I absolutely love what you can do with WMS stamps!!
