Are you wearing an invisible crown?

Time for a non-Christmassy crafty project, it's actually a refreshing change right now. A little bit of calm in a sea of Christmas bedlam. This background was made from the "If the crown fits" stamp set from Creative Expressions. I love the versatility of these stamps, I can think of loads of ways of using them.




You can really see the white snow cap dabber paint stamped with the flourish stamp here.


I've used: -
Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo Distress inks
Adirondack Dabber - Snow cap 
Tim Holtz flourish, Roman Print stamps
Gold florist wire
Crochet ribbon
Pink glitter
Bow charm

A beautiful card and sentiment. I must confess I would have struggled to find a use for a crown! :o)
