Queen for a Day

Today I have a really cute card for you. I was inspired by one of my classes who are studying Ancient Places. Wouldn't it be nice to be queen for a day? This card is complete with regal reds and golds. Can't wait to find a special time to use it.

For this card I used a digital image from The Paper Shelter titled "Walk like an Egyptian." I coloured the image once again with my Copic Markers and added gold sparkle to her accessories using a gel pen. The design paper is from SEI's Homestead 6x6 paper pad. I embossed the gold rectangle the image is layered on with Tim Holtz's Brick embossing folder by Sizzix and distressed it as well as the adage tag with Aged Mahogany Distress ink. The card wouldn't be complete with some Prima Bling.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
