Queen For a Day

Today is the Queen's 87th birthday - that makes her just three weeks older then my Mum, although she's so much stronger and fitter she could be 20 years younger. But then, she must get the best medical care in the land!

I've celebrated the day by making a card using backgrounds and a decoupage image from the Best of La Pashe 2012 CD, embellished with die cuts from the X-Cut London Skyline set and a "stamp" made by embossing silver card with a Papermania Portobello Road folder and sanding the raised areas to make them stand out from the background better.




I am submitting this to  CD Sundays where this week's theme is Majesty and to Creative Crafts Challenge where the them is Red, White and Blue

  7. Great card Jane. I bet Her Majesty would love it as I know she has a great sense of humour and would adore the little corgi in the basket.
