Let's be Royal at Our Creative Corner

Morning All
I hope that you are well and looking forward to a great weekend.
As those of you that are regular visitors to my little world will know I won the Recycle It challenge over at Our Creative Corner a few weeks ago.
My prize is to be guest designer this week where the challenge is Let's be Royal.
As usual there is a picture for you to be inspired by, and a few other requirements.
- Create a card or project with a royal look using a crown, castle or a princess.
- Use the photo to inspire you.
- Your project must have something yellow or gold embossed.
- Most of all have fun!

I searched through my stamps for something suitable to use, and once again I was inspired by a lovely Magnolia stamp available from SirStampalot Princess Welcome Tilda.
I coloured her using Distress inks Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.
 I fussy cut Princess Tilda ready to add her to the finished card.
The very regal shield which I trimmed and mounted onto gold card stock is by Stampendous as is the floral stamp that I used in the background.
I ran the main background panel through my Grand Caliber using an embossing folder on the left hand side only.
Princess Tilda was shaped and then added using Silicon.
I also added some tiny pearls.
I hope you like my efforts and that you will pop across and check out all the other wonderful creations that the Team have come up with, there are some truly talented Ladies on the team so I feel very honoured to be allowed to join them this time.
Have a great day.
Happy Crafting
