It's good to be the queen...
When I made this card, one of my DDs commented that it looked like a card for a princess with all of the crowns. Well, I don't know many princesses (maybe my youngest niece...) since my girls are way too 'tom boy' like to qualify. If they were princesses they would be like Princess Winifred from Once Upon a Mattress. "She swam the moat!" ANYWAY... I thought this would be a perfect card for a 'queen' sentiment.
"It's good to be the queen. Enjoy your special day!",
or "Hope you are treated like a queen, today!",
or"May your day find you treated like royalty!"
or "Let them eat cake!"
This was another card from my club. When we went to add the smooch spritz to the cards the ladies made, the squirter was a little leaky. So, here's a tip for storing and transporting the spritz. Be sure the tubes stay upright or you will have a really messy spritz tube! This came together pretty easily. I stamped the frame in chocolate chip, then stamped the sentiment inside the frame. I also colored the inner frame using a blushing bride marker. A little fussy cutting and then popped the frame over the ribbon using dimensionals. When the whole card was completed, I used vanilla shimmer and blushing bride smooch spritz to add some extra shine and shimmer! The stamp set is available through the sale-a-bration catalog. You still have some time to place a qualifying order and receive this stamp set for FREE!!!
