I'm The Queen Of The Castle.....

And you're the dirty rascal!!!! This card was made with two of my favorite colors, Melon Mambo & Soft Suede.
I think is pretty fun - what do you think?

The sentiment was from a new set from the Summer Mini called Favorite Thoughts. I masked off the word queen at the end of the sentiment and cut out the letters instead using the Big Shot and Timeless Type Letter Medium Sizzlett Dies, adhering them to the card using the glue pen. I used a strip of Melon Mambo DSP, and free handed the tear to expose the white in the paper. I inked the edges of the WW cardstock that I built the foundation of this card on as well, with MM ink.

Next I stamped out 5 little crowns from the Tiny Tags stamp set, alternating in Soft Suede & Melon Mambo. I punched these out using the 3/4' circle punch, then punched out opposite circles in 1' and layered them accordingly. I popped these all up along the top, alternating the colors!

And finally, I looked at this card and thought, for a Queen inspired card, it was missing some "blingy sparkly-ness" so I pulled out my Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and iced it with a couple splashes of it. I might just have to keep this card for myself, unless you know any other Queen's out there in lala land?!?!
