Royalty and a Giveaway

It's hard to believe the weekend is just about over, although, for me, it finished off much better than it started!  I came down with some kind of virus but feel so much better now.  We took a trip to Lancaster County on Friday to a favorite place to eat and stopped at a local farm to buy some summer fresh produce.  Today, we spent with family celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday.  Back to work tomorrow.

I made this card a couple of week's ago while watching Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.  It didn't start out with a royalty theme.  I first made a card from some kraft Recollections cardstock.  The panels use K&Co Julianne paper which I distressed the edges.  Going through some random odds and ends, I found the Queen playing card.  I had a pack of Recollections diecut stickers that included the crown and Royalty label placed in two of the panels.  The tag was stamped with a PTI sentiment and attached to the vintage seam binding, twine and flower.  The rhinestones and pearls are also from Recollections.

I just want to mention that a sweet fellow blogger, Karen Letchworth, is having a giveaway on her blog My Cup Runneth Over.   If you leave her a comment by July 2, you'll have a chance to win the new CD#3 from Crafty Secrets of vintage images.  Love those images from Crafty Secrets!

Have a wonderful week!
