City Crafters ... The King and I

Good Morning friends ...
This week at City Crafter Challenge ... we have Kirsty hosting for us and she is taking us to Monte Carlo ... the place fit for any King or Queen ... and with that in mind ... the challenge she has chosen for us, is to create a card or project with a Crown on ... 



so here's my card ...


I went with neutrals for this with a shot of blue  ... The papers are mostly SU (Love Letter) and I printed the crown (a freebie from Crafty Secrets) onto Damask paper from DHD ... a scrap of black lace just happened to fit nicely on that crown ...


Every crown need jewels right? and I had this beautiful big blue one in my stash together with those little ones ... and see that little black crown sitting on my ribbon? ... that came from one of the Pixie Dust kits ... I just used a felt tip pen to make it black then some diamond glaze to add a gloss to it ...


Can you see the insy winsy bit of lace on it too?

And did I mention that at  City Crafter Challenge we have a Guest Designer from the UK ... Carol Quance aka  Alcoholinky ... you won't want to miss her lovely creation or that of the rest of the DT ... so I hope you'll stop by for a visit ...

Till soon
