Royalty Queen Valentine


I actually started a third card yesterday but didn't get very far on it.  I finally found a minute to finish it up today!  I just loved the color combination at Stampin' Royalty this week.  They are absolutely perfect for a masculine card!  I combined it with the Queen for a Day challenge over on Splitcoast to CASE ourselves.  Royalty, Queen...they go together perfectly, right?!   I picked this card of mine to do because it is one of my favorites that I've made and I love the sketch! 


I told you I was going to make sure I used that embosslit!  It is getting a workout already and there's like 5 weeks or so left to make Valentines! I pulled out my pile of scraps to make the banners.  Maybe if I made 525,255,825 cards like this I could use up all my scraps!   ;)   Do you hoard them too??   I need an intervention!   I did a bit of sponging and spritzing on this one because manly cards always say distressing to me.   I guess I think men are dirty?  Ha!  


Laila is getting so long!!!   Her blanket is not going to work for floor time pretty soon.  Good thing we had a big quilt made for her.  :)   Tomorrow we go for her 6 month appointment and shots.  I dread it.  I hope she doesn't have a rough time with them and I REALLY hope she doesn't catch anything while we are there!

Love your masculine card. Great colors. I am with you on hoarding the scraps. I hate to throw them away is they are big enough to pucnch or use.
