Queen For The Day - A Quirky Mother's Day Card

I recently got this FABULOUS Kraftin' Kimmie Queen stamp from Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps. I thought she'd make a fun and quirky Mother's Day card for my mum. My mum is not the tradional "vase of roses" gal and I think this will suit her to a "T"! I figure Mother's Day is the perfect day to give her time off from cleaning the castle and for making her feel like a queen - LOL.

Kellie also challenged us to use buttons with our creations this week - can you see the 3 on here??? I decided I didn't have any buttons in my vast stash that would be regal enough - so I popped some plain white ones on and covered the holes with pearls. The flowers also came from Tickled Pink Stamps Store and the DP is from Webster's.

I've also used my Spica pens on her - she has a very slight shimmer all over her veil - and more shimmer on the gold trim of her crown. My mum isn't into a lots of frills and fuss so I didn't want to glam her up too much - LOL.

LOVE YA MUM!

And now here's a little bit of fun for YOU!....
