Queen For A Day

Wow there's lots going on in the UK in the next few months, not least the Queen's Diamond Jubilee! And this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge, Keeley has chosen a fabulous theme in keeping with the upcoming events... ROYALTY! An ideal opportunity to get your gems and pearls out... as you can see I haven't skimped on the bling! Not my usual type of card... but I did enjoy piling on all that sparkles and shimmers! All individually stuck on too... what was I thinking? The flower is made by twisting organza ribbon and sticking it to a circle of card (I'd advise using a glue gun for this as I didn't and it rapidly became unstuck!!!). The pearls in the centre of the flower are sew on.

We are sponsored this week by Some Odd Girl and The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, who have some fab prizes up for grabs... check out the Cupcake blog for all the details. While you're there take a peek at the other DT creations... I'm sure even the Queen would love them! 

Thanks for popping by,
Shelly x
