Creative Belli Challenge #116

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to make a card or project with a Royal Theme in honor of Prince William's wedding (fleur de lis, diamonds, princess, crowns, tiaras, the color purple, etc......)!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

My card features Rubbernecker's Paris 1908 set...the background was stamped on kraft c/s with several different stamps from the set using Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant for a collage effect. The crown was stamped with Elegant Eggplant, cutout, popped up with foam dots and silver pearls were added for a little glam. The couple was stamped onto vanilla c/s with Elegant Eggplant and distressed with Ranger's Vintage Photo. The fancy silver dodad under the image is my old thing along with the ribbon...I have had both of them for over a year!!
Recipe: Stamps: RN Paris 1908 set #SKU:528, Paper: Kraft, Vanilla, Prism Classic Purple, Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Accessories: Ribbon, Silver Pearls, Silver Metal Trim


This is also for a few other challenges:

Absolutely fabulous Joan. Love the jewels on the crown and the purple ribbon is so regal, perfect card for the royal wedding. Have you decided what you will be wearing to the wedding?

A fabulous vintage style card, Joan, love the regal purple ribbon and the dodad (never heard that word before!), and the way you've embellished the crown stamp is lovely. I'm just waiting for my invitation to the wedding to arrive, it must have got lost in the post, lol.

I have something for you that you might like. Can you drop me an email: applesandpearscards at hotmail.co.uk. My mail doesnt always get through so let me know when you've emailed me so I can check the junk folder in case it's found it's way in there. CoB
