King (or Queen) For A Day! DCM Challenge

I had a card to make for a commission with a fairy princess brief so decided to combine it with the Daring Cardmakers Challenge which this week is:

... My Majestic theme is quite a simple one....

I would like you to incorporate a Crown (or Tiara) somewhere upon your card! Have fun and I can't wait to see what you create :)

And this is my response!

Crown cut from my own template (inspiration drawn from my new 99p Princess stamp) onto the silver card from the Scrap Store which has then been run through the swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and edged with 3d silver glitter paint. The backing is pink tissue paper which has been ruffled a little!

The little princess was made from the commission specification and uses Sizzix dies and more of the pink tissue paper to make the floaty princess dress. The tiara and wand are Quickutz dies.
Apologies for the card angle - husband is in charge of taking photos at the moment as the daylight does not really extend beyond my working hours and he's not as 'thoughtful' with the photos as I am!
  • Card: From the Scrap Store, tissue paper from my stash
  • Dies: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Sizzix and Quickutz
  • Other Bits: From my stash
