Queen for the Day!

I made this card for another friend's birthday. I am proud to say that this one reached it's recipient on time too. (That's 2 if your keeping track.) I didn't mess up her birthday in my calendar, but she did have a party so I knew exactly when I needed it. :) (If you don't know what I am babbling on about, check my post from yesterday.)

I really enjoyed making this. First of all, I finally took the time to make a card just for fun, not for a DT. I have been wanting to use Princess Jennifer Latte from The Stamping Boutique and decided this was the perfect reason. She reminds me of my friend, and I don't mean that in a princess-y way, but in a stylish, mocha-sipping (or latte-sipping) way. I also wanted to make another joy fold card because I had fun making the first one.


I liberated some felt from my DD's bin of crafting goodies and created the rose out of it. I sprayed it with various shimmer mists until it was a more suitable color (meaning not the Peptobismo pink it originally was). I finished the inside with a sentiment from Create with TLC that says "I Declare You Queen for the Day".

That's all I have for today. Thank you for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, I love the added rhinestones on the punch. That is a super cute image. I think we are like the painters wife, her house never gets painted. We make cards for everyone else, so when we need one we don't have any handy, lol.

Your post made me smile. I love the image (great colouring), and the sentiment you've used sounds perfect. I know what you mean about missing dates, I have them all in my calendar, but still manage to forget, even though I live by my calandar (lists for everything!). I'm sure your friend will appreciate your wonderful card. Thanks for joining in with our die/punches theme at Incy Wincy this week. Hope to see you again next week. Annette xx
