I can’t believe that another week has flown by, here we are at Friday again and of course you know what that means, I’m sure.

It’s dare day with the Daring Cardmakers.

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!
I can’t say that crowns or tiaras are things that I use a lot so I had fun trying to find a way to make one of them fit in with look of my cards.

In the end I went for all things circular……..all except for the crown that is!

The papers are all from the DCWV Black and White Prints stack with some doodling added for effect.

I hand cut the little crown from a sheet of thin Silver metal, inked the edges with Black Staz-On and added some embossing with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I cut various sized circles using my Nestability dies, inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink and embellished a couple of them with screw head type brads before layering them onto a piece of Black card that had also been embossed, this time using the Dots & Spots embossing folder.

I finally added the text.
‘My Prince’ is stamped with Black Staz-On using the Line Dot alpha stamps that came with an old Scrap Goods Kit and the circular greeting is from the Funky Hand, greetings sheet that I printed out for last weeks dare. I’ve inked the edges with Distress Ink and added a spiral clip, ribbon and a brad.

Love all these circles - and of course you can't go wrong in my eyes with the B&W colour combo!

The little crown is so sweet - and how clever are you to make it and emboss it - I'd never have thought of that
