Queen for a day

Hello, hello!

I'm afraid that once again I'm going to have to post and run... so much to do, so little time. :)

My card today is for two challenges, first up is the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge to use charms. I'll be the first to admit that my little stash of charms is not one of my usual go-to embellishments so I thought this would be a fun one to do. When I started sifting through them the filigree circle first caught my eye and immediately made me think of this cute Princess Petunia stamp. Now a plan was starting to form... I pulled out the sketch for the Tickled Pink challenge this month and new right away that it would be a perfect fit for the theme of my card. Doesn't it kind of look like the 'days of yore' pennants and crests with the four square block design? Add to that the perfect brocade looking papers and I was happily transported back in time to restrictive corsets and a serious lack of indoor plumbing... wait did I say happily? LOL
I still like the card though. ;)

Ok, time for me to get ready for the day... talk to ya later!
