Queen for a Day

I used silver cardstock to create the base for this 4 1/2"x6 1/4" card. I cut a piece of glittery purple cardstock 1/8" smaller, then trimmed out the corners. I adhered some purple organdy ribbon on the left side and added some small white pearls to the cut-outs in the corners. The crown is cut from Home Decor at 2 1/2," using both the regular and shadow feature. I matted it on some glittery white cardstock, cut at 3"x5 1/2," and some silver cardstock cut 1/8" larger. I used a corner rounder on those two pieces. I adhered that over the ribbon. For the inside of the card I cut a piece of glittery purple cardstock 1/8" smaller than the card base and some white cardstock 1/8" smaller than the purple. I then used Once Upon a Princess and the sentiment, "Queen 4 a Day," using the phrase feature, at 2 1/4" from silver cardstock. I finished off my card with a lot of bling on the crown, because a crown just HAS to have bling! I made this card for these challenges:
