Crowning Glory

Friday, is Daring Cardmakers Day and this time it's the famous and fabby Jo Kill's turn to set the dare for the Design Team and for all the wonderful darers.

Jo here this week....
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 :)

I've made a few crown/tiara cards for various reasons lately so I wanted to think up somethiong different for Jo's dare.

So, I'd been mulling this one over for nearly the whole week when suddenly, yesterday morning I had one of those "lightbulb" moments - I'll leave you to guess where I was at the time....
I remembered the little coin holders that came in an ancient kit froms the now defunct Self-Addressed. Took a while to locate them, but that's nothing new! I popped the penny inside the holder and made a cover using my Craft Robo to cut the perfect sized circle. I've been looking for a chance to use these newly acquired papers by Fancy Pants - they're from the Aged Florals collection and are rather delicious. RicRac and ribbon are from Ribbon Oasis, the brads from my stash, I printed out the rhyme on the pc. I still feel there's something missing - maybe I should have added a strip of another of the papers aross the middle before adding the coin holder...... yep, I think that might be it. Too late now.

Please pop along to the DCM blog and see what other cards the Girls have come up with - there are some fab ideas for using crowns and tiaras - definitely more than I'd ever manage to come uup with! We're really looking forward to seeing what all the fabby Darers come up with for this one so put your thinking crowns on (thinking CAPS are soooooo last year)

Anyway, I've shown these other crown cards before, but hey, Jo's dare is a good excuse to pad out the blog with them again, eh?
