Right Royal Quirkness

It's that Quirky time again! The Quirky Craft's Challenge has started and this time it's Cazzy's turn to set the challenge, and Cazzy has chosen...
"A Right Royal Affair!"
Seeing it's the royal wedding this coming Friday, Cazzy thought it was a great time to get out your crowns, posh hats, banners and flags and see what you can do with them!
Use the colours red, white and blue on your project and then anything that is inspired by royalty. Think romance, weddings, parties (street party), crowns, ermine, couples, cake, champagne, flags and so on!
I'm away all this week, till the weekend but I did take a 'few' things with me and this is what I came up with, using Bugle Bear from one of our Sponsors.
This week we have two generous sponsors. The first of these is Paper Pretties. The winner of the DT choice will receive this lovely stamp set called Everyday Lilly....
And our second Sponsor is Limited Runs and the public choice winner will receive any 3 digi's of their choice! How cool is that!
As you can see I've drawn my own Castle, (used 5"X5" card) coloured with Promarkers and added four Bugle Bears on folded pieces of card, so they would easily fold down when the easel card is closed, and still fit into the envelope. I've also used a strip of Pink Petticoat fluffy Clouds backing paper on the back fold so it can be seen when the card is closed. (Once opened that disappears to the back of the card)
I've added banners and flowers in red, white and blue and of course when the Queen is home.... up goes the Union Jack!!
I've used an ordinary paper brad at the back of the castle, (and on the castle door) so it would swivel up or down for when the card is closed or open.
Pop over and see what everyone on the DT have done. We have some great makes from our guess designers this time too!!
I'm not here, so I'm hoping Mr Blogger has the right time and will start this off at the right time too. So, that's it from me! I'll be back to fix all my mistakes later...It's all over to you now!!

  2. This is great I love it. I can't wait to watch the wedding Friday. It will be 1am our time. We are going camping so I won't be home to watch it live, but I am going to DVR it. :) I would watch it in the trailer but they frown upon running the generator after 9pm and there is no electricity. Ergh! hehe
