Queenie's Birthday

Today I'm off to a birthday party at Queenie's Castle.  (It's the birthday of Queen Mel who heads up our Red Hat chapter)  On her card I've used a background print from Pink Petticoat - Tiny Leopard Spots and used another Clarity stamp.  The print could have been a little overwhelming if I had put much more embellishment so I've left it with very little, a couple of pearls and a bow.  Unfortunately, the light was really bad here and the day was mostly overcast so the true colours of the paper are not showing up, it is much brighter than this and the golden glints in the embossing powder do not show.  Never mind!  Bring on the fun and laughter, the jelly and ice-cream and CAKE.


I'd like to enter this card into the following:-

Lovely card - that paper is fab and you are right that it doesn't need much in the way of bling or embellishments. Great image also.
