The CD Sunday Challenge - Majesty

I am sorry I have not  been blogging much over the last two weeks, blame the flu,  today is my third week as guest Designer for the CD Sunday Challenge, I had three goes at this card, I wanted something different and a shaped card and in the end I started again and finished up with an easel card.  The theme this week is Majesty.  This theme was picked by Carol whose birthday is this week,  I wont say how old she is,  but it has a big 0 in it.
Well as You can see I chose our Queen,  this year marks the 60th anniversary of the coronation and also my 60th  (you did not see that) so my card marks 60 years on the throne.
I the backing papers from Klever Konstruction Once in a Lifetime volume two,  the image I got from Google as a free image.   The frame,  the flourishes and name plate are die cuts that Suzanne sent me,  (thank you Suzanne),   the sprays with red flowers I found the other day (amazing how you loose things, forget about them and then find them)  red and blue ribbon from stock.  With a name plate on the base card reading "Happy 60th"   finished off with gold corner peel off 's.

I wish Carol a very Happy Birthday and hope she has a very happy week.
I have some items to bring you hopefully next week I will be back with new goodies, and some news I have to share with you in the meantime I am fighting time as I have been asked to make 12 snowflakes only they would like them like last week.
Until we meet again Take care.


  1. Fabulous card Margaret, love all the details and gorgeous pic of Her Madge......
    So, your 60 this time, wow, you would have been getting a pension then, before the baffoons came into power....I have a few friends very angry about this, worked and now have to wait..........what a mess....xxx

  2. Hi Janette

    Yes it would have been nice as vernon has already retired, but I have to wait and they have added on another 6 months so it will march 2017 now before I get my pension, Not a happy bunny they increased it back in my thirties that was bad enough but to have another 6 months, I won't get on my soap box but the air was very blue here when they announced it.

  3. A really pretty easel card for your 3rd DT spot, your flowers are lovely, yes, we do forget what stash we have, your frame and die cuts are lovely as well.
    hope you soon feel better., now go and do the snowflakes

  4. A great card Margaret, I love the way you've combined the red, white and blue together with the flower spray. Hope you are feeling better.

  5. That is a card befitting a queen! You chose a lovely photo too. I wish I could help you tat those snowflakes. It would take at least another 5-10 days to reach you after the tatting. Hope you are better from the flu, Margaret.
