Late Challenge, DCM

Apologies to the people who's blogs I read daily, I have not been on my computer since Wednesday morning. I have not made anything since Tuesday evening. I really have not been well, the antibiotics wiped me out & I decided the rest was far more important. I have missed 3 challenges & have decided not to play catch up. This one however is a card I began making 3 weeks ago & then threw to one side as I couldn't think what to put on it. I made the tag & just couldn't think what to put on it. Yesterday, I stamped the queen tag part of the Hampton Arts stamp & then re stamped the crown part of the design & gold embossed it for impact. I added Her Majesty for the greeting. This would make a fun birthday card for an old friend.
I will hopefully be starting my challenges as normal this week as I miss them, but my head was too empty to think of anything for WS, Chairs, Theme Thursday, Boys, 4x4 Friday Trees (well Ive done that one to death really!) & I am still mulling over the Saturday Stampers, Tone on Tone! Might give it a go.

Papers for this are all offcuts from another project, DCWV Once Upon a Time. Stamps, Hampton Art & Studio G.
