Oh .. to be Queen for a day ...

I'm never very organized, no matter how much I am determined to be!! Stamp club is only two nights away and I am only partly prepared. It seems that I have been in a creative funk and have become lazy to the point where I'm cruising the blogs looking for projects to case. Time to put my thinking cap on and come up with my own creations! In addition to having to prepare for club, I have several birthdays coming up that required special cards. Here is the one I created for my co-worker, Donna: (spoiler alert for my club ladies - we are doing this card on Wednesday!)

Donna is a wonderful lady and very much deserving of being a Queen for the day, if not all year round. This card uses basic black card stock for the base and Pacific Point for the layer. The PP is run through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The Vintage Wallpaper folder is one of my absolute favourites and I use it quite often. Of course, the Queen deserves some bling so I spritzed the Pacific Point layer with a shimmer mist made from the frost white shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol. Just love that shimmer! The flower was punched from strips of First Edition DSP that had been crumbled, distressed with the tea stain and azure blue inks in the distressing kit and then punched out with the scallop circle punch. A clear rhinestone in the centre of the flower added another little touch of bling. The stamp used was from the You're a Gem set on page 25 of the Occasions Mini. This was punched out with the small oval punch and layered on basic black punched out using the Decorative Label punch. I'm so sad that this punch has been temporarily back ordered. Hopefully that will be rectified soon. A little more bling with the basic rhinestones and then finally, a trinket crown from the set of three Trinket Crowns found on page 24 of the Occasions mini. What a nice touch the crown is for the Queen. haha

Hopefully my club ladies won't mind a sneak peek of one of our projects. The remaining projects will be posted after club. Until then, take care.
