Crown Jewels


Good morning all!!  After losing most of yesterday to a killer migraine I am so happy to be feeling back to normal.  Good thing too as I've got a busy day ahead.  To start it off I've got a card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use crowns and/or gems in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee.  I love this Teresa Collins crown stamp that I got from Amy and it goes perfectly with this Unity sentiment.  After trying a few different backgrounds I finally settled on this one from Market Street Stamps.  Added a few gems and voila!  A card fit for a Queen!  :)  Hope you all have a lovely headache free day!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (So Saffron, Perfect Plum) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Here Comes the Sun background stamp) Market Street Stamps, (Crown from Freestyle) Teresa Collins,  (Sentiment from May '12 KOM - Love In An Instant) Untiy

Inks: (VersaMark, VersaFine Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Bookmark) PTI, (Nesties Labels 4) Spellbinders
Gems:  (Bumblebee & Lavender assortments) Doodlebug

Love this rich-looking card - what a great idea! I have that MS background stamp and I've never use it - but I will now - it looks fantastic!

migraines...gross! You really do lose timeto them :( Blech. I'm glad it's gone.
The sun rays background is perfect - makes it look like the crown jewels are super BLINGY :) And still, that sentiment. Am I ever going to stop snorting with joy every time I see it? Probably not.
(BTW, I do not match you for scarlet, but according to Connor I have turned a nice shade of pinky-tan...)

Sorry about the migraine, Jen! The sentiment made me LOL! Love that crown stamp--it looks so dimensional, I couldn't believe it's a stamp!

Such a bummer about the migraine! I get them once in a while, it's the pits.

On the upside, this card rocks! Loving the very royal purple and gold:) The sentiment, the crown, the light rays were just meant for each other!

Hope you're feeling better today my friend!

Oh my graciousness, I HAVE to have that sentiment stamp! That is freakin funny! As is your card - it's brilliant in fact.

I'm soooo sorry you get killer migraines. I do, too, so I literally feel your pain. (It must be because of all that cleverness happening in there.) I hope you don't get another one for an elephant's lifetime!

Bummer about your sweet head, Jen! Those nasty things are so debilitating. But this card is simply regal.....seriously fit for the queen! Great background and love that sentiment. Your gems are perfect, and you are one yourself!

Lindsey said...

Yep, the rays background was totally the way to go, especially in regal purple! Awesome card, and like Em, I need that sentiment. :D
You get migraines, too? That sucks. Glad it's gone today.
