Queenly Card


Good Afternoon everyone!  This is Holly and this is my card creation for the March challenges I would like to enter.  I used DCWV Chateau Lavender (this is currently my favorite DCWV paper stack), and a Sweet November stamp (allthatscraps.com) that I had received for Christmas.  This was my first time using this stamp, and I absolutely love her!  I stamped the image on white paper and then again on a gold paper, and a green paper from the Chateau Lavender stack.  I cut out the crown and bow from gold paper, and the dress was cut out from the green pattered paper. I really like paper piecing.  I added a few bluebirds for a sweet touch.  This card has lots of Sparkle!  And what girl doesn't love sparkle?

I got the inspiration for this card from CupcakeInspirations.blogspot.com.  They are holding their 200th Challenge this month.  This cupcake is from Challenge 50.  Perfect for March!cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com
I also went to the cardmakinmamas.blogspot.co.uk where they have their challenge for the month as being anything with GREEN.  A lot of green preferably.  I thought both of these challenges paired up perfectly together and with the Sweet November stamp.

I also entered this into the AllSorts Challenge whose theme this week is "For A Lady."  Nothing like sitting peacefully in a clover field watching the bluebirds in a sunny sky as the perfect day for a lady (or anyone else for that matter).

I entered this into the Cupcake Craft Challenge as well.  Their theme this week is Sparkle.  I think this card definately has a lot of sparkle. One of my favorite things!
