CCCB # 48 "The King and I"

Hello!

How are you?
The week has just started and after a few days without being in the mood for crafting I realised that time is running short for one of my favorite challenges at the City Crafter Challenge Blog
And I wanted to submit a card.....
This week you have to add a crown(s) to your project.

Here is the photo inspiration:





I made a card with my favorite embellishments and colors...:)

The sentiment is a bit "pale" but you can read the sentiment in the close up:






A labelstamp from Waltzingmouse stamps ( Rescue Remedies) stamped with pink and after cutting and embossing I inked the edges with baby blue. Flowers from Mulberry, pin from me :) and  the crown, button and ribbon are from my stash.
The paper on the bottom of my card is stamped with my "Floral" stamp from Darkroom Door. The pink polka dotted paper is from Tilda and that gorgeous blue paper is from a paper pad from Papermania that Ros sent me. I used two different border punches and added a few stitches and some white ink on the edges.
Here is my card:




I hope you like it........
And now it's time for some blogging; I still have a lot of blogs to visit so I am on my way to you.....
Till soon!
Stella

Wat een leuke blogfoto heb je, viel me meteen op toen je een reactie bij mij achterliet.

En je kaartje is geweldig, mooie en zachte kleuren, daarin ben jij Queen! :) Prachtig kroontje! Titel doet me denken aan de film The Kings Speech, die errug goed is!

Groetjes, Marjan
