Here is my challenge card for my theme of Crowns and Castles - as you can see I have opted for castles on this one!


Stamps used are:  Paper Artsy Crowns and Castles 2, 4 and 7, Magnolia frog, butterflies, toadstools and brick wall, Elzy Bells George and Dragon, Woodware Woodland Mushrooms and I am not sure of the make of the alphabet but I know it came from the Studio Cards catalogue. 
Distress inks used: Weathered Wood, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Frayed Burlap, Bundled Sage and Pumice Stone.
Promarkers used: Blue, Khaki, Ice Grey 2, 3 & 4, Baby Pink, Gold, Apple, Grass, Forest Green, Terracotta, Honeycomb, Coral, Pastel Beige, Pastel Blue, Red, Buttercup and Leaf Green.
Have also used my sizzix cloud die - the Happy Birthday banners are handcut.
This is a three tiered card - here is an aeriel view:
sorry for the poor quality but the weather isn't so good today is it!
