Memo from the Queen ...

Hi everybody

I hope you are all looking forward to the Jubilee Bank Holiday and have some fun times planned with family or friends.

This Saturday at the One Stop Craft Challenge we are celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and we want to see Crowns or diamonds and red, white and blue, on your projects.

I have made an 8 x 8" card.  I have layered up red, white and blue card and on top of that a sheet of paper with the flagon it.  My stamped piece has a background created with Pan Pastels, and a stencil used to create the diamond background.  A variety of stamps have been used - Stampotique, Hero Arts and Papermania.  The embellishments are a crown brad and some tiny gems on the centre of the flowers running along the top.

I had this card planned a long time ago when I saw the Memo from the Queen stamp, and several options for the sentiment, (from Stampotique) but decided to go for the saver option!
