A Royal Card for a Queen

 Feeling a bit royal today with the "royal wedding" and all that! I found this Crown Pattern Paper (unknown source)  in my stash....think it was in a garage sale find as well as the stamps. Guess that is not so royal???
So I decided to use the crown paper but it was kind of an unusual color..limey green ...toned it down with some distressing. Added in this "Very Regal" Sketch from Card Patterns and came up with this card. The hat reminds me of one that Queen Mum would wear.
Challenges- found some royal challenges too:
Oldie but a Goodie: Fit for a Queen..stamp is from a garage sale bought last year...from 2003.
A Spoon Full Of Sugar: All Things Royal....have my  royal paper and hat.

Lollipop Crafts: Shabby Chic and Vintage...used lace, distressing with ink
 and distressed edge of image. 
Stamps: Anna Griffin Hat and Sentiment
Inks: SU More Mustard, Ranger Wild Honey Distress Ink, Versamark and Gold EP, Copics-Y 26,YG 03,93, RV11,17,19
